I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Fulwell I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fulwell for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 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 existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
