Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Borehamwood

Me and my wife are buying a maisonette in Borehamwood. My lawyer is not listed on the lender solicitor list. Can I still retain my Borehamwood conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank approved list?

Various options include

  • Proceed with your existing Borehamwood solicitor but your mortgage company will undoubtedly appoint a solicitor from their conveyancing panel. The net result is additional charges together with likely delay.
  • Appoint a fresh solicitor to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your lawyer to attempt to join the lender panel

My partner and I changing mortgage lender for our penthouse in Borehamwood with Skipton. We have a son 19 who lives at home. 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, waiving any legal rights in the event that the property is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this form unique to the Skipton conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 4 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right 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.

I purchased a terraced Victorian house in Borehamwood. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
