Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Sanderstead I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sanderstead for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
