My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Carterton and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
Your solicitor is obliged to check with mortgage company to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Carterton garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Carterton conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Carterton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review 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 permission.
