Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Avonmouth

My husband and I are refinancing our flat in Avonmouth with Barclays. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the apartment is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the Barclays conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 3 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?

On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Barclays. This is solely used to protect Barclays if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Barclays had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Avonmouth before instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not issue a loan on this type of house.

Should I be concerned by brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm rather than a local Avonmouth conveyancing practice?

As with many professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are many people with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all suggest solicitors to instruct. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the lender related work in your transaction.
