Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Lichfield I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lichfield suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Lichfield. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Lichfield - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
