IfI was to purchase a simple residential homein Wigton for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Wigton?

Any savings you would achieve will be limited to the disbursement for searches. A solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with your vendors solicitor, SDLT return, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a mortgage however it will not be significant.

We had instructed conveyancers with offices in Wigton on the Co-operative solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental amount for dealing with the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Co-operative?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Co-operative but by your Wigton conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Co-operative panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Wigton conveyancing practitioners are appointed. How long does it take for Bank of Ireland to forward the offer to the lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Bank of Ireland done the survey? Have you advised Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

Notwithstanding that your last Wigton conveyancing solicitor is not available you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed.

This means that you cannot sublet in the absence of prior consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
