Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Nunhead I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Nunhead in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
