I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Rhoose. The Rhoose property was put into my name in January.

Will no one buy the property for half a year?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Rhoose I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rhoose for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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.
