I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Harefield I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Harefield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor 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 existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
