We are about to exchange buying a house in West Beckton but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor of £2k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement however Leeds Building Society are not allowing this. Why were they involved?

The West Beckton conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my purchase in West Beckton have suddenly closed. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel and my preferred West Beckton lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for £250 in advance. What should be my next steps?

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. 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 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 lawyers should be in a position to assist.
