We are buying a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Levenshulme who is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Santander . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Levenshulme.
The Levenshulme conveyancing firm that just started acting on my purchase in Levenshulme have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and my previous Levenshulme lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What are my options?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Virgin Money 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 may be able to help.
I have justbeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Levenshulme for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Levenshulme conveyancing specialists.
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Levenshulme prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders tend not issue a loan on this type of property.

We are 18 days into a leasehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to carry out the conveyancing in Levenshulme. I am am extremely frustrated with the level of service. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A solicitor would have to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the loan offer been sent? If so you need to inform them of the replacement solicitor and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid escalating expenses and delays. So that should be your starting point.
