Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Hanworth I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hanworth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
