I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Islington I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Islington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Islington I wish to talk to a solicitor regarding thehome move ahead of appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Islington should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
