I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Biggin Hill I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Biggin Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
