I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Burford I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Burford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
