The Northern Moor conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Northern Moor have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I had to have a solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and my previous Northern Moor lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them 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 Coventry 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 solicitors may be able to assist.

A purchaser’s lawyers will also order an enviro report. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be carried out.
