I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Robertsbridge I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Robertsbridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of selling agents in Robertsbridge to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site over a competitor’s?

Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
