I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in St George I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in St George for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our St George garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a St George conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in St George do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
