I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Aylesbury I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Aylesbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may 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 concerning this matter.
