The lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Silverstone do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.

My husband and I hope to buy our first house in Silverstone. Conveyancing solicitor already chosen. The mortgage adviser advised that a survey is not appropriate as the house was only constructed in 2002.

At the very least you should order a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises was constructed more than a decade ago the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report could be enough. They will highlight any obvious problems and recommend further investigation where relevant. Where there are any signs of material issues seek a full Building Survey from the beginning.
