We are midway through buying a residence in Faversham. Conveyancing solicitor has called to say the property is "Leasehold". Should this adversely affect the marketability of the property?

Faversham conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The crucial factor here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the value significantly.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant impact on the value, and most likely wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be stated in the lease which should be made available to your solicitor.
