Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Palmers Green I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Palmers Green for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
