I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Copmanthorpe I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Copmanthorpe for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
