We are midway through purchasing a house in Harold Park. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the property is "Leasehold". Should this impact the marketability of the property?

Harold Park conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The main consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are hundred of years years remaining with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to affect the marketability significantly.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The length of lease and ground rent will be specified in the lease to be supplied to your conveyancer.
