Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Carshalton I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Carshalton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
