Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Duston I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Duston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
