Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Henleaze I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Henleaze for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could 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 lawyer regarding this.

When buying a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
