I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Woolwich I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Woolwich in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
