We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the property agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’.

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Tyne And Wear conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Tyne And Wear. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Tyne And Wear - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
