My fiance and I are intent on buying a maisonette in Middlewich. My Solicitor has never been on on the bank conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to use my Middlewich conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the lender approved list?
You must instruct a lawyer to complete the formalities if you need a loan to buy your home. They will carry out all the appropriate investigations on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One may instruct a Middlewich conveyancer of your choice. However, where the solicitor selected is not a member of the mortgage company conveyancing panel supplemental charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so where your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they should do so.
My husband and I are refinancing our maisonette in Middlewich with Aldermore. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this form unique to the Aldermore conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this giving up his rights to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your Aldermore 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 Aldermore. This is solely used to protect Aldermore 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 Aldermore 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.

Should our conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Middlewich.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Middlewich. There are those who purchase a property in Middlewich, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Middlewich. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the vendor to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s solicitors may also order an environmental report. This should higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.
