The Long Eaton conveyancing firm that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Long Eaton have suddenly closed. I chose them because I had to have a lawyer on the Aldermore conveyancing panel and my previous Long Eaton lawyer was not. I cut them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What are my options?
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. 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 Aldermore 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.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 72 years left on my lease in Long Eaton. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is absent. What should I do?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to locate the landlord. For most situations an enquiry agent should be useful to try and locate and prepare a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Long Eaton.
Long Eaton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries before buying
How much is the ground rent and service charge? The majority of Long Eaton leasehold apartments will incur a service charge for the upkeep of the building set by the freeholder. Should you buy the flat you will have to pay this liability, usually in instalments throughout the year. This may vary from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for bigger purpose-built blocks. There will also be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a significant amount, say around £50-£100 but you need to check it because on occasion it can be many hundreds of pounds. Best to be warned whether fixing the lift or some other significant cost is coming up to be shared amongst the tenants and may well materially impact the level of the service charges or result in a one time invoice.
