Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Sneyd Park I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sneyd Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
