The Flitwick conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Flitwick have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a firm on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and my previous Flitwick lawyer was not. I paid them money on account. What are my options?
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 reasons beyond your control. 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 Coventry 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 solicitors should be in a position to assist.
We are due to move home in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Flitwick. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your selling agent however this should only happen once the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you will need to tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you choose a conveyancing in Flitwick or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Flitwick.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Flitwick. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Flitwick on 20/5/2019, valuation was booked 3 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Are Barclays entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Flitwick I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Flitwick for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

My husband and I are 14 days into a residential purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Flitwick. I am not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
