I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Dollis Hill I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Dollis Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you.

Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Dollis Hill conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
