Conveyancing in Hornsea : Keep it Local

5 reasons to let us help you choose a high street conveyancing solicitor in Hornsea

  • 1 Retaining the services of a local Solicitor generally means that you will receive a more personal touch. When using a large conveyancing firm, you tend to be looked after by a team of people who who progress matters by reading from their computer screens.
  • 2 Cut price packages from online conveyancers might be tempting. However, these companies are often located many kilometers away with little appreciation of the factors that impact property transactions in Hornsea
  • 3 Excellent communication and a wealth of local knowledge are key benefits that you should value when selecting conveyancing solicitors. Hornsea property deals can become a lot more stressful because of lack of transparency between all the parties. The lawyers we work with ensure that the lines of communication are open and act on arising issues and developments expeditiously.
  • 4 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Hornsea is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by national chain estate agents) often falls short of the high standards of professionalism you would hope for.
  • 5 There is a distinct possibility the other side’s lawyers have offices in Hornsea - if so both parties are likely to be on good working terms

My fiance and I intend to remortgage our maisonette in Hornsea with Barclays. We have a son 19 who lives at home. 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 flat is forfeited by the lender. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this form unique to the Barclays 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 Barclays. This is solely used to protect Barclays 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 Barclays 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.
