I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Great Barford I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Great Barford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
