My husband and I intend to remortgage our apartment in Barlaston and Tittensor with Principality. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify 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 two questions (1) Is this document specific to the Principality 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 Principality. This is solely used to protect Principality 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 Principality 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.
When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Barlaston and Tittensor and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Barlaston and Tittensor you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract simply enables the firm to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Barlaston and Tittensor)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Barlaston and Tittensor I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Barlaston and Tittensor in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
What makes a Barlaston and Tittensor lease unmortgageable?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Barlaston and Tittensor. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the premises
A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. National Westminster Bank, Skipton Building Society, and TSB all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to pull out.
