My partner and I may need to let out our Frant 1st floor flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We used a Frant conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Frant 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.

I have read on numerous online forums that when selecting a conveyancing solicitors they need approved by your lender. This is my first house move but I have an AIP via Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a local conveyancing solicitor in Frant in place. Can Birmingham Midhshires require an approved conveyancer to be used? Does a list of panel conveyancers even exist so I can choose a conveyancing lawyer in Frant?
You need to use a solicitor that is on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. The first thing to do is ring your chosen Frant conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. If they are not approved you have a couple of alternatives open to you here:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Frant property lawyer but Birmingham Midhshires will undoubtedly appoint a conveyancing practitioner on their approved panel. This will result in additional fees together with potential delay.
- Appoint a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Birmingham Midhshires conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancer to pull out all the stops to get listed on the Birmingham Midhshires panel of solicitors.
