We are midway through buying a property in Burntwood. Conveyancing solicitor has told us the title is "Leasehold". Should this make a difference on our HSBC valuation?

Burntwood conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the value too much.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a material impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The length of lease and ground rent will be specified in the lease which should be made available to your conveyancing practitioner.
