I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Woodcote I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Woodcote suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
