We opted for a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Brixton today. Upon checking the Terms I seewe are on the hook for costs even if the dealdoes not happen. Should I go with them or use a web based conveyancing company promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Brixton?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the cases that do not proceed. Please beware that these promotions generally do not cover expenditure such your Brixton conveyancing search costs.

The Brixton conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Brixton have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I had to have a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel and my preferred Brixton lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT 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 the problems encountered. Most sellers would 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 Nottingham 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 assist.
