My fiance and I intend to remortgage our penthouse in Pembrokeshire with Clydesdale. We have a son 18 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 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 Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale. This is solely used to protect Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale 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.
A relative informed me that in buying a property in Pembrokeshire there could be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external changes to the property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Pembrokeshire which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Pembrokeshire should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
How can we know in advance if a Pembrokeshire conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?

We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from HSBC as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Pembrokeshire. Are we obliged to select a high street Pembrokeshire solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
HSBC don't usually require firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
