Stockbridge Village conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The key consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are hundred of years years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the value significantly.

On the flip side, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a adverse impact on the saleability, and most likely wouldn't be mortgageable. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease provided to your solicitor.
