My partner and I changing mortgage lender for our maisonette in Bethnal Green with HSBC. We have a son 19 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, waiving any legal rights in the event that the property is forfeited by the lender. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we remortgaged 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this giving up his rights to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your HSBC conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing 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 HSBC. This is solely used to protect HSBC 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 HSBC 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.
I am planning to move house in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Bethnal Green. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across your page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from the property agent however this should only happen when the vendors lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Bethnal Green or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Bethnal Green.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Bethnal Green conveyancing practitioner on the RBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Nottingham have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a flat in Bethnal Green has been accepted, what happens next?
Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (make sure the solicitors are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Nottingham or your financial adviser and finalise any outstanding forms. Nottingham will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book a time for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nottingham will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Bethnal Green.
