    Does the lease have more than 82 years remaining? How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments? Where a Sacriston lease has less than 80 years it will affect the value of the flat. Check with your lender that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. A short lease means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this will be.
