I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Great Barford I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Great Barford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage 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 proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
