From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title.For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I am intending to rent out my leasehold apartment in Appleton. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

First make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion.
