There is not much else in Walton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I am intending to let out my leasehold apartment in Walton. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

A small minority of properties in Walton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
