I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Upton Park I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Upton Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
