I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Knightsbridge I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Knightsbridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 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 current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
