Harry (my fiance) and I may need to sub-let our Keynsham 1st floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Keynsham conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Keynsham do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold 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.

    You should want to discover as much as possible about the company managing the building as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property.

Enquire of other people what they think of their management. Finally, find out the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the relevant party and precisely what it includes.
