I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Upper Norwood I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Upper Norwood in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
