I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Copse Hill I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Copse Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
