What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Repton? Is this really warranted?
You are right in these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Repton. Nowadays you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing process without first handing over evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a council tax bill. Please note that if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of identification it must be both the paper element as well as the photo card part, one is not satisfactory without the other.
Proof of your source of monies is required in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. You should not be offended when you are asked to produce this as your lawyer will need to retain this information on record. Your Repton conveyancing solicitor will require evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any money from you into their client account and they should also ask additional questions concerning the source of monies.
The Repton conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in Repton have without warning closed. I only went with them because I had to have a lawyer on the Barclays conveyancing panel and my previous Repton lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know 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 Barclays 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.

As far as conveyancing in Repton registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
