I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Wooler I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Wooler for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to 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 solicitor about this.
