Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Heanor I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Heanor in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
