Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Clophill

I can't travel far from Clophill. I would like to know the reason why all Clophill conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all mortgage company panels?

Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies pruning a number of firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .

My partner and I changing mortgage lender for our penthouse in Clophill with Clydesdale. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the property is forfeited by the lender. I have two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we bought 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his rights 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 Clydesdale. This is solely used to protect Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale 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.

My aunt purchased her house in Clophill in 2005. She has got married, widowed and in recent months got remarried. She wishes to sell the house next moths. I think she will just be requested to provide a copy of her marriage certificates to the lawyer however she is worried it could hold up the house move. Should she appoint a solicitor to update the land title details for the property?

It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register on the basis that you have the evidence required to show how the change of name occurred.

Any purchaser’s conveyancer should examine the land registry entries and requisition evidence to prove the change of name e.g. marriage certificates.
