we are a couple who are purchasing a purpose built apartment in Ventnor with a mortgage from Britannia.We use our Ventnor conveyancing solicitor but Britannia says her practice is not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Britannia panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Britannia approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel.

You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Britannia

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Ventnor. The Ventnor property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August.

My fiance and I may need to rent out our Ventnor 1st floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Ventnor conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

Some leases for properties in Ventnor do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests 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.
