Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in St Annes Park I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in St Annes Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
