Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
