My husband and I are refinancing our maisonette in England Springs with Co-operative. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 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 flat is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Co-operative conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 4 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 Co-operative 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 Co-operative. This is solely used to protect Co-operative 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 Co-operative 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.
Completed the sale of my flat in England Springs last September but my buyer keeps whats apping me complaining that his lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened following completion?
Post completion of your sale your lawyer should forward the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities unique to conveyancing in England Springs.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in England Springs. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in England Springs?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
My lawyer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in England Springs?
The appropriate level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
I had an offer accepted on a house in England Springs on 20/7/2021, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Aldermore and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Are Aldermore entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in England Springs 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
