I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Green Street Green I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Green Street Green suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require 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 property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

As is the case with lots of service providers, often recommendations from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest lawyers to use.

You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.
