I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Launceston I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Launceston in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years 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 existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
