I am soon to complete buying a house in Tutbury but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the seller in the sum of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but TSB are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Any conveyancer that is on the TSB conveyancing panel is required to disclose to TSB of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the price change to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Tutbury.
We're in Tutbury, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Clydesdale , and our lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors.

How does conveyancing in Tutbury differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Tutbury come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Tutbury tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Tutbury or who has acted in the same development.
Frank (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Tutbury garden flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Tutbury conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
The lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will say if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Tutbury do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the tenancy agreement.
