I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Barnard Castle I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Barnard Castle in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
