I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would much rather instruct a Newent based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors where you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender to explore if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Newent.

The mortgage over my property is with Clydesdale for my property in Newent. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?
You must advise Clydesdale in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let 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 Clydesdale directly. You need not do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel firm.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Newent 1st floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Newent conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Your lease dictates the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Newent do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.
