1. your lawyer must check the length of the unexpired term left on the lease because the majority of mortgage providers don’t allow a mortgage for a lease that only has under 60 years leftover on them.
2. your leasehold lawyer must check the other terms, conditions and obligations within the leasehold contract that could restrict the usage, enjoyment and furtherimprovement of the leasehold home.
