I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Battle I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Battle for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign 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 regarding this matter.

My husband and I yesterday become aware that one of the partners of the firm handling the purchase conveyancing in Battle is an aunty of the seller. Is this acceptable?

On the basis that no conflict arises this is allowable. If you are obtaining a mortgage then the lender may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific requirements concerning this. For example for Halifax as of 13/5/2021, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Not if the person dealing is the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family. Your firm may act if a separate fee earner of no less standing or a partner in the firm acts for us.
