We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

Westgate on Sea conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the saleability significantly.
