My husband and I intend to remortgage our flat in Thorpe Astley with HSBC. We have a son 18 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 3 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his rights to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your HSBC 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 HSBC. This is solely used to protect HSBC 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 HSBC 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 planning to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Thorpe Astley. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the estate agent but this can only take place when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Thorpe Astley or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Thorpe Astley.

I am the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Thorpe Astley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors 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 caught by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Thorpe Astley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Thorpe Astley lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Thorpe Astley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Thorpe Astley approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Thorpe Astley tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Thorpe Astley or who has acted in the same development.

I have been looking for Thorpe Astley online conveyancing estimates. Can I be assured that all the Thorpe Astley practices that are listed on your directory are on the bank conveyancing panel?

The law firms on our directory have assured us via an online form that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Thorpe Astley conveyancing solicitor being on the bank conveyancing panel is not accurate.
