Frank (my husband) and I may need to sub-let our Crook 1st floor flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Crook conveyancing practice in 2001 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?

The lease dictates the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will say if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Crook do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.

Is there a share of the freehold? What is the name of the managing agents?

Some weeks ago I was told by my bank that their approved conveyancers work on no sale no charge basis for conveyancing in Crook. I had a purchase fall through nevertheless the lawyers have requested search fees! They are stating that the fees are independent!

Crook conveyancing search charges are disbursements not solicitors costs as these are paid to independent parties.
