Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Greenford I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Greenford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
