I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Maida Hill I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Maida Hill for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may 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 solicitor concerning this.
