Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Frodsham I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Frodsham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
