My apartment in Holton le Clay is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my lawyer need to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Holton le Clay. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform UBS?

UBS must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact UBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a UBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Holton le Clay. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £200. A few days later, the lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to sub-let our Holton le Clay ground floor flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Holton le Clay conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will say if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Holton le Clay do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.

I inherited a garden flat in Holton le Clay, conveyancing having been completed June 1998. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Holton le Clay with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2098

You have 74 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
