Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Rhiwbina I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rhiwbina for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
