I am in the market for a reasonably priced property lawyer. Should I go for for an online conveyancer as opposed to a local Waterhouses conveyancing lawyer?
Established third party relationships are another important factor to consider when appointing conveyancing lawyers. Waterhouses law firms enjoy long term relationships with financial advisers and agents, local authorities, valuers and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Hosting a well rounded intelligence of the local area is an advantage.
My wife and I changing mortgage lender for our penthouse in Waterhouses with RBS. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the property is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the RBS conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we bought 3 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 RBS 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 RBS. This is solely used to protect RBS 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 RBS 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'm selling a house in Waterhouses. I can find my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?
Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unqualified staff.
