Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Desford

My fiance and I are refinancing our apartment in Desford with Kent Reliance. 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. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the property is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 3 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Kent Reliance 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 Kent Reliance. This is solely used to protect Kent Reliance 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 Kent Reliance 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.

we are a couple who are buying a newly converted apartment in Desford with a residential mortgage from Birmingham Midshires.We like our Desford conveyancing solicitor but Birmingham Midshires advised that her practice is not on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Birmingham Midshires approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires
