I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Horsham. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Horsham - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title.
