Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Peak District

My partner and I swapping mortgage lender for our penthouse in Peak District with Santander. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. 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 two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Santander conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we bought 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his entitlement 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 Santander. This is solely used to protect Santander 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 Santander 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 not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Peak District bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Peak District conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your solicitor has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase.

Our sealed bid on a house in Peak District has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Peak District. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Barclays going?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Peak District conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Barclays approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with the conveyancing in Peak District.
