Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Dartmouth conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the RBS conveyancing panel?
Dartmouth conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from RBS directly.
The Dartmouth conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Dartmouth have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my previous Dartmouth lawyer was not. I paid them £170 on account. What should be my next steps?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately 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 will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Yorkshire BS 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 should be in a position to help.
I am selling our property in Dartmouth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Dartmouth lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Dartmouth. Having lived in Dartmouth for three years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
