I am looking at a couple of apartments in Lanchester which have about 50 years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are plenty of short leases in Lanchester. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term.
