Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Chorlton cum Hardy I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Chorlton cum Hardy in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could 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 with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
