I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Kimbolton I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Kimbolton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
