Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bovey Tracey costs more?

The conveyancing fees on a leasehold premises in Bovey Tracey is often higher than on a freehold property.

The Bovey Tracey conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Bovey Tracey have suddenly shut down.

What should be my next steps?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would 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 Leeds Building Society 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 may be able to help.

Should I be concerned that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Bovey Tracey conveyancing company?

As is the case with many service providers, often referrals from relatives can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are numerous parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all recommend conveyancers to instruct. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to appoint your own lawyer. Don't forget that some banks have an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your house move.

Am I best advised to appoint a Bovey Tracey conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal formalities but her office is a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Bovey Tracey conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that must outweigh using an unknown Bovey Tracey conveyancing lawyer just because they are Bovey Tracey based.
