Chelsea Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 12/5/2022 the requirements read as follows :

85 years from the date of completion of the mortgage. Please ensure that you explain the implications of a short term lease to the borrower.
