My partner and I intend to remortgage our apartment in Welwyn Garden City with Nationwide. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose 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, waiving any legal rights in the event that the apartment is forfeited by the lender. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the Nationwide conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 3 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his rights to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your Nationwide 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 Nationwide. This is solely used to protect Nationwide 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 Nationwide 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.

Just acquired a semi-detached house in Welwyn Garden City , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Welwyn Garden City conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the registration is addressed.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Welwyn Garden City registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration occurs once the buyer is living at the property thus 'speed' is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Welwyn Garden City with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.
