Much to our surprise we have been notified by our mortgage broker that my Poppleton and Bishopthorpe the law firm I have appointed is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I check?
Your first step should be to contact your Poppleton and Bishopthorpe conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Poppleton and Bishopthorpe conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.
The Poppleton and Bishopthorpe conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my house acquisition in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe have suddenly closed. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and my previous Poppleton and Bishopthorpe lawyer was not. I paid them money in advance. What should be my next steps?
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. 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 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.
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Poppleton and Bishopthorpe lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe. Having lived in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
