I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Parson Cross I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease.

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
