It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Millwall I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Millwall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
