My previous lawyer has quoted just over a thousand pound for no sale no fee conveyancing in Lymm. I’m hoping to downsize from a modern house for £125,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Lymm?

Due to complete my purchase in Lymm next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?

The Lymm conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Lymm have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I had to have a firm on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and my preferred Lymm lawyer was not. I issued 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 the problems encountered. Most sellers would 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 Nationwide 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 help.
