My mortgage broker has asked me for my Rye law firm’s panel member for the Santander conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have tried my local Rye office but they have not got back to me yet.

I am intent on selling our house in Rye and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Rye conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Rye. We have lived in Rye for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Frank (my husband) and I may need to sub-let our Rye ground floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Rye conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Rye do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse 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 consent.

How much is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the apartment? Please note if it is less than eighty years it will impact the value of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are content with the length of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering what this will be. For most Ryelease extensions you will need to own the residence for a couple of years before you are entitled to extend the lease. It would be sensible to enquire if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For example plenty of leases prohibit pets being permitted in in a block in Rye. If you like the flatin Rye however your dog is not allowed to make the move with you then you will be presented with a difficult compromise.
