I instructed a local firm for my conveyancing in Ham yesterday. Upon checking the fine print it is apparent thatI am responsible for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I go with them or select an on-line conveyancing brokerage promoting no completion no charge conveyancing in Ham?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise those conveyances that do not go ahead. Dont forget that such deals rarely cover expenditure e.g. Ham conveyancing search charges.
The Ham conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in Ham have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a lawyer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my family Ham lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT on account. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved 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. 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 thinking of appointing a conveyancing practitioner in Ham for my home move. Is there any facility to review a solicitor's complaints history with the profession’s regulator?

I have just started marketing my basement flat in Ham. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal because all rents and service charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
