I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Hastings I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease.

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you.

22 days into buying a residence in Hastings. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the title is "Leasehold". Does this adversely affect the marketability of the property?
Hastings conveyancing does not normally involve leasehold houses. The main factor here is the length of lease 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’s unlikely to affect the value too much.
On the flip side, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a material effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease provided to your conveyancer.
