Does anyone know anything about getting the seller of a flat to extend the leasehold as a condition of sale, including how long it can take, general risks, that sort of thing?

I know that in most cases you aren't lawyers, but I'm interested in experiences of doing it or "don't touch with a bargepole". I should add that there is no way on earth I'll be buying anything that actually has a short lease if it isn't extended before it is mine.

Also, Google is failing me, but does one extend the lease back to e.g. 99 years, or add 99 years to it?
