I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Beckermet I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Beckermet for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. 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 ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
