I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Askam In Furness I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease.

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
