Completed the sale of my flat in South Cave last May but my buyer keeps whats apping every few hours to moan that his solicitor needs to hear from myconveyancer. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Following your disposal your lawyer is committed to deliver the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers.

Your property agent will need to be advised as to your solicitor's details (ensure that the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list).

Our offer on a detached house in South Cave has been accepted, the owners do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in South Cave. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with RBS?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, South Cave conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

My fiance and I may need to rent out our South Cave 1st floor flat for a while due to a new job. We used a South Cave conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in South Cave 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 see references. Experience dictates 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.
