An extended lease has roughly the same value as a freehold

It is conventional wisdom that a property with more than one hundred years unexpired lease term is worth roughly the equivalent as a freehold. Where an additional ninety years added to all but the shortest lease, the residence will be equivalent in value to a freehold for decades to come.

Lending institutions may not issue a mortgage on a short lease

Nearly all banks and building societies will be unwilling to grant a mortgage on a lease with less than 70 years unexpired - although this varies between mortgage companies. A buyer will likely encounter difficulties to obtain a mortgage and this could result in your Woodside property being difficult to sell or refinance.
