My wife and I intend to remortgage our apartment in Worksop with HSBC. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who lives in the flat. 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 concerns (1) Is this form unique to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise 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.
Should our lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Worksop.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Worksop. There are those who buy a house in Worksop, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Worksop. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages resulting from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro report. This will indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.
How does conveyancing in Worksop differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Worksop approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Worksop tend to purchase 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 Worksop or who has acted in the same development.
