I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Chase Side I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease.

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
