It has come to my attention via my mortgage adviser that my Gants Hill solicitor is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?
The best course of action for you to take is to contact your Gants Hill conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Gants Hill conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.
We are approaching an exchange on a property in Gants Hill and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?
The property lawyer is obliged to clarify with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

My partner and I may need to let out our Gants Hill basement flat temporarily due to a new job. We used a Gants Hill conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Gants Hill do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse 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 permission.
