Fiveweeks into buying a residence in Aldersgate. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the title is "Leasehold". Does this impact our HSBC valuation?

Aldersgate conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the marketability too much.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, 50 years it is bound to have a significant effect on the saleability, and most likely wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be specified in the lease provided to your solicitor.
