The purchaser’s solicitors should also commission an environmental search. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be made.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Morriston I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Morriston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should 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 existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
