Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Bletchley I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bletchley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
