I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Upton I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Upton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
