My IFA has requested my Queen's Park law firm’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have called my local Queen's Park branch but they have not responded to me.
Have you tried speaking to your Queen's Park solicitor about this?. Most Queen's Park conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
My husband and I intend to remortgage our penthouse in Queen's Park with Virgin Money. 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 lives in the flat. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is forfeited by the lender. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this form unique to the Virgin Money conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 3 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 Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money. This is solely used to protect Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money 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.
