My husband and I are refinancing our maisonette in Cinderford with Co-operative. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify 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 apartment is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Co-operative conveyancing panel as he did not need 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 Co-operative 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 Co-operative. This is solely used to protect Co-operative 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 Co-operative 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.
Do I need to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Cinderford so that I can attend their offices when needed.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Cinderford I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Cinderford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

1st select a lender such as Santander, The Royal Bank of Scotland or TSB then specify your preferred area e.g. Cinderford. Conveyancing firms in Cinderford and nationally will then be shown.
I own a leasehold flat in Cinderford. Conveyancing was completed in 2010. I have heard that I should not let the lease length get too short. Why is that a problem?
Cinderford leasehold properties are for a set period - normally 99 years when they are first granted. However many appartments in Cinderford were constructed or converted 35 or more years ago and so such leases now have less than 80 years left to run. This may sound like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have a minimum of 75 years unexpired to adequate security. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing 75 years. To optimize your property value you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Please note that there are strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is below 80 years the premium to be paid to extend starts to escalate.
