I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Writtle I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Writtle for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
