I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Lisvane I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease.

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated 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 can 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 speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I am attracted to a two maisonettes in Lisvane which have approximately forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
