I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Streatham I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Streatham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

One month into purchasing a property in Streatham. Conveyancing solicitor has told us the title is "Leasehold". Should this make a difference on our Santander valuation?
Streatham conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The main consideration here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the value significantly.
At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, fifty five years it will have a significant effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease to be supplied to your lawyer.
