I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Standish I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Standish suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign 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 about this.
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 subsequently been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Standish. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?

If a Standish lease has no more than 80 years it will affect the salability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your lender that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth finding out how much this will be. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for two years in order to be legally able to exercise a lease extension.
