I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Old St Mellons I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Old St Mellons for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may 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 speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
