My wife and I intend to remortgage our maisonette in Corwen with Aldermore. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the Aldermore conveyancing panel as he did not need 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 Aldermore. This is solely used to protect Aldermore 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 Aldermore 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.

This question may be naive but I am new to the home buying as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Corwen. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Corwen?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Corwen. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
Lloyds have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a house in Corwen has been accepted, what happens next?
Your property agent will wish to be informed of your conveyancer's details (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Contact Lloyds or your financial adviser and finalise any outstanding documentation. Lloyds will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to schedule a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days to get a mortgage offer. Lloyds will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Corwen.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Corwen agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Corwen. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Barclays started?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Corwen conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Barclays and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Corwen.
I completed on my flat on 4 September and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Corwen said it will be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Corwen particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Corwen registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration occurs after the buyer is living at the property so 'speed' is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
