I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Chipping Campden I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Chipping Campden for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
