My husband and I intend to remortgage our flat in Wimbledon with HSBC. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the property is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this form unique to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we purchased 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his rights 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 HSBC. This is solely used to protect HSBC 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 HSBC 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 purchased a flat in Wimbledon last 1/7/2020 and to date it is still not registered with HM Land Registry. It was part of a development site and my lawyer told me that it can take over a year to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?

It is your solicitor that you should contact in order to satisfy any questions which have arisen as part of the registration process for your Wimbledon property. Normal Wimbledon conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s solicitor that they will assist in resolving any question raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
