My partner and I are purchasing a leasehold flat in Robin Hoods Bay. My Solicitor is not listed on the lender solicitor panel. Am I still permitted to retain my Robin Hoods Bay conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the mortgage company approved list?
You have a couple of alternatives open to you here
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Robin Hoods Bay conveyancer but your lender will undoubtedly instruct a conveyancing practitioner on their approved panel. This will result in additional cost and potential interruption.
- Choose a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your conveyancer to seek to join the lender panel
The Robin Hoods Bay conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my purchase in Robin Hoods Bay have without warning closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel and my family Robin Hoods Bay lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation 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 Principality 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 assist.
