You should be aware if it is no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out how much this would cost.
