My husband and I intend to remortgage our maisonette in North Finchley with Leeds Building Society. 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 concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as he never had 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?

First, rest assured that your Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society. This is solely used to protect Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society 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.

It is is a decade since I acquired my home in North Finchley. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the mortgage company or they may be archived with the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in North Finchley involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in North Finchley what would it be?

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest North Finchley conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in North Finchley. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

My offer on a detached house in North Finchley has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in North Finchley. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, North Finchley conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in North Finchley.

I own a leasehold flat in North Finchley. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in North Finchley who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?

First make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a North Finchley conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
