Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Dorset I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Dorset suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
