The owners of the home we are purchasing are using a conveyancing practitioner in Laceby who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a payment two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements generally advanced for Laceby conveyancing transactions?
Exclusivity contracts are agreements between a property owner and prospective acquirer giving the buyer a ‘clear field’ to purchase the premises within a prescribed time frame. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract specifying that you should have a contract at a later date which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be used for buyer assurance though in many situations, the proprietor may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are numerous pros and cons to having them but you need to check with your lawyer but note that it may result in incurring more in conveyancing charges. For these reasons these agreements are rare in relation to conveyancing in Laceby.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Laceby. I have a mortgage offer with Bank of Ireland. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Laceby. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Shortly after, the property lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale 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 Laceby 1st floor flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We used a Laceby conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
The lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, 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 Laceby do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.
