I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Willerby off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Nottingham. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
My sealed bid on a detached house in Willerby has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Willerby. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society going?
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 in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Willerby conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to move forward with searches.

I want to sublet my leasehold apartment in Willerby. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
The lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will set out 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 allowed. The majority of leases in Willerby do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the tenancy agreement.
