Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in North Finchley will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party.

The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in North Finchley.

I would like to sublet my leasehold apartment in North Finchley. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?
Even though your last North Finchley conveyancing lawyer is not around you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the premises. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek permission via your landlord or some other party before subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without prior permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If your lease prohibits you from subletting the property you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
