It’s basically a written agreement between you and the freeholder, setting out the rights and responsibilities of both parties (mostly their rights and your responsibilities).
When it comes to selling your property there can be a whole host of documents you will need to be aware of that you will need to send to your solicitor or conveyancer. Knowing what you need will help speed up the process (hopefully!) and ensure that when your solicitors or conveyancer asks you are ready to provide them with the documentation that they need.
