If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?
