I can't really find anything else in Trafford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
