Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Kirby Muxloe I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Kirby Muxloe in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
