I am considering mortgaging my property in Heckington, does my lawyer need to be on the Santander Conveyancing panel?

Just bought a semi-detached house in Heckington , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Heckington conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are dealt with.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Heckington registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. At present roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to let out our Heckington garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Heckington conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
The lease dictates the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Heckington do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.
