It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Cheetham building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend.

How does conveyancing in Cheetham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Cheetham contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Cheetham usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Cheetham or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Cheetham I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cheetham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
