I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Chislehurst I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Chislehurst in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

Partway through the sale of a leasehold flat in Chislehurst. Conveyancing solicitors are doing their job but we are being charged a fortune by the landlord. So far we have paid £237 for a leasehold management information and then another £134.40 for supplemental queries supplied by the purchaser's conveyancer.
You will not have any say over the level of the charges for this information but the typical fee for the information for Chislehurst leasehold property is £355. When it comes to Chislehurst conveyancing deals it is customary for the seller to pay for these charges. The freeholder or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer these questions although many will be content to do so - albeit often at high prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no statute that mandates capped charges for administrative tasks. Nor is there any statutory time limit by which they are obliged to provide answers.
