It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Haringey. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't locate the title documents. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Haringey relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may impact a commercial site in Haringey?

The search result sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Haringey.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to let out our Haringey garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Haringey conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Haringey do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests 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.
