Is the fact that my conveyancer in Saltburn By The Sea is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Saltburn By The Sea conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
I purchased a freehold residence in Saltburn By The Sea but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Saltburn By The Sea and has limited impact for conveyancing in Saltburn By The Sea but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I am intending to sublet my leasehold apartment in Saltburn By The Sea. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
