I had a chat the same Crowborough conveyancing practitioner who dealt with the legals when I initially acquired the property. The costs estimate issued of just over five hundred pounds has shocked me as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s just a straightforward remortgage.

Sixweeks into buying a property in Crowborough. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the property is "Leasehold". Should this make a difference on our Santander valuation?
Crowborough conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a nominal rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.
On the flip side, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a material impact on the value, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be stated in the lease provided to your lawyer.
