I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Market Weighton I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Market Weighton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
