The Vale Of Glamorgan conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Vale Of Glamorgan have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and my previous Vale Of Glamorgan lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What are my options?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know 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 will need to 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.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Vale Of Glamorgan. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £150. Shortly after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Virgin Money panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Vale Of Glamorgan differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Vale Of Glamorgan approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Vale Of Glamorgan usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Vale Of Glamorgan or who has acted in the same development.
