I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Swanland I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Swanland suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
