Me and my partner are due to complete buying a property in Wetherby but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the seller of £2k by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract however Nottingham are not allowing this. Why were they involved?
Your solicitor that is on the Nottingham approved list is duty bound to disclose to Nottingham of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to report the price change to Nottingham then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nottingham and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Wetherby.
I used Arc property Solicitors several years ago for my conveyancing in Wetherby. I now require my file however the law firm has closed. What do I do?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Wetherby I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Wetherby suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
