My partner and I swapping mortgage lender for our maisonette in Hurworth with UBS. We have a son 18 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 property is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the UBS conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his entitlement to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your UBS 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 UBS. This is solely used to protect UBS 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 UBS 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 the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Hurworth. The Hurworth property was put into my name in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Are Yorkshire BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
