Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Limehouse I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Limehouse for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may 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 at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you.
