I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Creekmouth I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Creekmouth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce 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 twenty four months 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
