Helen (my wife) and I may need to sub-let our Keswick garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Keswick conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

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

You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

You will not have control over the level of the charges for this information however the typical fee for the information for Keswick leasehold property is £350.

The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to address these questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Regretfully there is no law that mandates fixed charges for administrative tasks. There is no statutory time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.
