I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Whitchurch I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Whitchurch for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce 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 a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Fiveweeks into buying a residence in Whitchurch. Conveyancing lawyer has called to say the property is "Leasehold". Does this adversely affect our mortgage valuation?
Whitchurch conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The main factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to affect the marketability significantly.
At the other extreme, if it's, say, 50 years it will have a significant effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the lender. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be specified in the lease which should be made available to your conveyancer.
