Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know 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 should appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton 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 may be able to help.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Much Hadham
It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives.
