As someone with no idea as to the Gamlingay conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Gamlingay
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Gamlingay or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the seller, selling agent and on occasion a bank. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Gamlingay is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is contrary to your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
The Gamlingay conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my purchase in Gamlingay have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel and my preferred Gamlingay lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for £250 in advance. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away 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 Clydesdale 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.
