I can't travel far from Ince in Makerfield. Is there a reason why all Ince in Makerfield property lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to lenders purging a number of firms from their official list of approved property lawyers .
My fiance and I intend to remortgage our apartment in Ince in Makerfield with Principality. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify 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, giving up any rights in the event that the apartment is forfeited by the lender. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the Principality conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we purchased 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this giving up his rights to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your Principality 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 Principality. This is solely used to protect Principality 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 Principality 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 have todaybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

Most buyers of new build property in Ince in Makerfield contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Ince in Makerfield typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield or who has acted in the same development.
