Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Saltash I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Saltash in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected 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 then assign 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 solicitor about this matter.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Saltash. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently had a half-yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as usual as all rents and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I inherited a ground floor flat in Saltash, conveyancing was carried out in 2002. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable flats in Saltash with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2080
With just 60 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 plus costs.
