I am acquiring a newly built apartment in Clayton-le-Moors and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to the lender to disclose incentives from the builder. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and my preference is not to delay the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I am buying a new build house in Clayton-le-Moors with a loan from Nationwide Building Society. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to rent out our Clayton-le-Moors garden flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Clayton-le-Moors conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Clayton-le-Moors do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

Its a good idea to find out as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they will either make living at the property much easier or problematic. As the proprietor of a leasehold property you are often in the clutches of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to practical matters such as the cleanliness of the common parts. Ask prospective neighbours what they think of them. Finally, investigate as to the dates that the service fees are due to the managing agents and precisely what it includes. Are any of leasehold owners in arrears of their service charge payments?
