Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Hurst I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hurst in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
