Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Great Ayton I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Great Ayton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass 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.

The solicitor does not have to be in Great Ayton, but opting for local means that you can go in if you need to, by way of example, if a signature is immediately necessary. In addition, a Great Ayton solicitor have established relationships with local agents and (if the vendor has instructed a local lawyer) with them, which should help smooth the process.
