Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Clacton On Sea I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Clacton On Sea suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely 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 at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
