Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Bude I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bude for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
