I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Ladywood I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ladywood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could 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 lawyer concerning this.
