Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Pinner Green I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Pinner Green suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
