Are the Blaenau Gwent conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Clydesdale?
Blaenau Gwent conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.
The Blaenau Gwent conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in Blaenau Gwent have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel and my family Blaenau Gwent lawyer was not. I paid them funds on account. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors 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 should appoint new lawyers that are on the Lloyds 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 lawyers may be able to assist.
The deeds to our house are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Blaenau Gwent 4 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
Gone are the days when you need to have the physical deeds to establish that you are the owner of your registered land or premises, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.
How does conveyancing in Blaenau Gwent differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Blaenau Gwent contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Blaenau Gwent usually purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Blaenau Gwent or who has acted in the same development.
