I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Mottingham I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Mottingham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. 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 a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
