My fiance and I are acquiring residence in Charlton. My Conveyancer is not on the bank conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to appoint my Charlton conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank list of approved lawyers?
You will need to appoint a property lawyer to deal with the formalities when you require a mortgage to buy your home. They will conduct all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One can instruct a Charlton conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the solicitor appointed is not on the lender approved list further charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your conveyancer has not historically sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
The Charlton conveyancing firm that just started acting on my house acquisition in Charlton have suddenly closed. I chose them because I needed a firm on the HSBC conveyancing panel and my family Charlton lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for £250 in advance. What do I do now?
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 HSBC 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 assist.

I have been Googling for Charlton competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be assured that all the Charlton law firms that are listed on your website are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices listed on our site have advised us that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Charlton firm being on the lender conveyancing panel is incorrect.
