Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandbach

My wife and I intend to remortgage our maisonette in Sandbach with Coventry BS. We have a son 19 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, giving up any rights in the event that the apartment is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Coventry BS conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his entitlement to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS. This is solely used to protect Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS 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.

I am aiming to move property in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Sandbach. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your site.

After that you can inform the removal company that you are ready to move in.

We previously selected solicitors located in Sandbach on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further sum for the legal aspects of the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Nationwide?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Nationwide but by your Sandbach lawyer. Numerous firms on the Nationwide panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am purchasing a property in Sandbach. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Coventry BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease fails to comply with these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Sandbach.

The deeds to my house can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Sandbach 10 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

Where copies can’t be located, your lawyer can put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.
