  • If it is 'share of freehold' then it is possible that the lease extension may be relatively cheap. However, mortgage lenders will be unhappy with a lease of less than 70 years, hence the demand for 'cash buyers only'. You will need to know the details of 'share of freehold', how is the property managed, who has the other 'shares', is there a policy re lease extension, etc?
