I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Wigston I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Wigston for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
