It has taken forever and a day but a mortgage agreement from HSBC for the remortgage of my single room apartment is to be issued by the end of next week. Are you able to suggest a cheap conveyancing lawyer in Newport Pagnell?

You are on the wrong site if you are seeking cut-price fees for conveyancing in Newport Pagnell. We can offer you value for money conveyancing but we do not work with the cheapest lawyers.

My husband and I intend to remortgage our flat in Newport Pagnell with Skipton. We have a son approaching twenty who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify 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 apartment is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Skipton conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we bought 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise 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 Skipton. This is solely used to protect Skipton 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 Skipton 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.

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to withdraw.

We are planning to purchase a four room flatin Newport Pagnell with a home loan from a bank. We like our solicitor in Newport Pagnell however our bank says he's not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose one of the our bank panel firms or keep our Newport Pagnell conveyancer and incur the extra costs for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our lender use our Newport Pagnell lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The bank home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had open panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Newport Pagnell : a borrower could choose 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
