The Barrow In Furness conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Barrow In Furness have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and my family Barrow In Furness lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.

I am purchasing a new build house in Barrow In Furness with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Barrow In Furness I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Barrow In Furness for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
