Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
