Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Burghfield Common I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Burghfield Common suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they 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 speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
