My partner and I are refinancing our flat in Heckmondwike with Coventry BS. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this form unique to the Coventry BS conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 3 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his entitlement to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS. This is solely used to protect Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS 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 be concerned that brokers that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a local Heckmondwike conveyancing practice?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may put forward conveyancers to appoint. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your home move.
My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their recommended conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Heckmondwike
It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Heckmondwike conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
