I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Delabole I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Delabole suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
