I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Walworth I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Walworth for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
