Please help - my lawyer says that lack of right of way insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Charlbury conveyancing?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Charlbury I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Charlbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price 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 can 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 term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
