I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Ickenham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ickenham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
