Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Burwash I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Burwash suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.
