My partner and I are refinancing our penthouse in Whitwick with Barclays. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults 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 property is repossessed. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Barclays conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 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 Barclays. This is solely used to protect Barclays 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 Barclays 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.
My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Whitwick. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Birmingham Midshires conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
You should call the solicitor and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should call Birmingham Midshires who may be able to help.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Whitwick I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Whitwick suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
