Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in West London I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in West London suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
