Is the fact that my conveyancer in Marks Gate is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?
That is most likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Marks Gate conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
The owners of the house we are purchasing hired a conveyancing solicitor in Marks Gate who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a down payment 6,000. Are such contracts generally advanced for Marks Gate conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of primary downsides with executing a lock out contract (also termed a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires minimal or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated amongst Marks Gate conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is not likely to secure injunctive relief to stop the vendor selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in limited scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
I purchased a freehold residence in Marks Gate yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Marks Gate and has limited impact for conveyancing in Marks Gate but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.

My wife and I may need to sub-let our Marks Gate garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Marks Gate conveyancing firm in 2003 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?
Notwithstanding that your last Marks Gate conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is permitted. There may be a precondition that you must obtain permission via your landlord or some other party prior to subletting. This means that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. The consent must not not be unreasonably turned down. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
