Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Dronfield I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease.

If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
