  • Lenght of lease


    I am looking to purchase a buy-to-let flat. I found a great property in the right area but it only has a 91 year lease. Is this considered too short? Is it easy to extend a lease, and is it hideously expensive?!

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated....

    I'm curious - if you're looking to buy to let, I would presume that 91 years would be more than enough?

    Apologies if that's a naive comment as I don't have much personal experience with this aspect of the market.
