I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in Market Bosworth I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Market Bosworth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
