Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Penrith I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Penrith suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
