Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Farnham Royal

My partner and I are refinancing our apartment in Farnham Royal with Nationwide. We have a son 18 who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who lives in the flat. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the apartment is forfeited by the lender. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this form unique to the Nationwide conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 5 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 Nationwide.

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 Nationwide 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.

My aim is to purchase a garden flat in Farnham Royal. Conveyancing solicitor is awaiting, from the seller, building insurance paperwork. I was told today I was informed that the owner must forward the insurance schedule for the flat above in addition. Why would my lawyer want to review the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly required? We have been stalled for the last month…
