Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Herefordshire I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Herefordshire for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
