Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Perranporth

My fiance and I are refinancing our flat in Perranporth with Nottingham. 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 lives in the flat. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the property is forfeited by the lender. I have two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Nottingham conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish 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 Nottingham. This is solely used to protect Nottingham 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 Nottingham 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.

We had chosen conveyancers locally in Perranporth on the HSBC solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate amount for the legal aspects of the HSBC mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by HSBC?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner can levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by HSBC but by your Perranporth lawyer. Numerous firms on the HSBC panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

I have paid off my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Perranporth lawyer on the HSBC panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your HSBC mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your HSBC mortgage has been paid off.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Perranporth. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an advanced payment of £175. A couple of days later, the property lawyer called me to say that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Nottingham Building Society to clarify?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Perranporth and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
