Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Kirkby Lonsdale 1st floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Kirkby Lonsdale conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Your lease dictates the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; in particular, it will say if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Kirkby Lonsdale 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 sending a duplicate of the sublease.

You can instruct a conveyancer now so that the solicitor can open the file so they can conduct the ID checks etc. As and when you wish them to commence work they will seek a deposit usually approximately £225. That should normally be after you have the loan offer from the lender and valuation results, nevertheless if you wish to expedite the process you can get going sooner albeit risking some money.
