I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Quedgeley I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Quedgeley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

I've found a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have since found out that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold.
