I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Stamford Bridge I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stamford Bridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
