I am due to exchange on the purchase of a property in Tiverton but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the owner of six thousand pounds by way of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
The lawyer being on a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Kent Reliance of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Tiverton.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Tiverton costs more?

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a garden flat in Tiverton. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Tiverton?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
Are all Tiverton Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing list of approved firms?
A selection of banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Tiverton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Tiverton lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel.

A small minority of properties in Tiverton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. 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 consent.
