    what is occupiers consent form? 1st Feb 10 at 12:58 PM
    I am in the process of buying a flat. Today my solicitor emailed me saying that
    "I have also requested an Occupiers Consent Form from Halifax which I will need send to you in order for the occupier to sign."

    I know the general process of house buying and mortgage. But I am not sure what is occupiers consent form and what is the purpose. I emailed my solicitor back (as it is an internet one I don't really expect quick response). Can someone tell me what this form is about?

    Many Thanks

    Apologies for resurrecting an old post, but I have a slightly different query.

    I am trying to get hold of a copy of the occupiers consent form I signed, however my solicitors went into administration last month. I have contacted the mortgage lender who advised they do not hold a copy.

    I am assuming that I will have to contact another solicitor to act on my behalf and trace it down, or is there another way I can get a copy. I have a fairy short time frame to do this in and was wondering what the best options are?

    Any help is appreciated.
