Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Charlton I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease.

If you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
