My husband and I are refinancing our flat in Chadwell Heath with TSB. We have a son 19 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 property is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this form unique to the TSB conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we purchased 3 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 TSB. This is solely used to protect TSB 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 TSB 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 completed on my apartment on 14 July and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Chadwell Heath said it will be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Chadwell Heath particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Chadwell Heath registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
