The Williton conveyancing firm that just started acting on my purchase in Williton have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a lawyer on the UBS conveyancing panel and my preferred Williton 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 let them know immediately 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 UBS 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.

When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Williton conveyancing practitioners face a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?

Is it the case that all Williton solicitor practices on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Leeds Building Society approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the CLC.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Williton conveyancing solicitors have been selected. How long does it take for Aldermore to forward the offer to the property lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore conducted the survey? Have you advised Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Williton from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Williton can be avoided if you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Most leases in Williton state that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring require a licence from the Landlord consenting to such changes. Where you fail to have the consents in place do not contact the landlord without contacting your conveyancer before hand. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as over rather than ongoing. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to where the remaining number of years is below 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share certificate. Organising a new share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Williton conveyancing deal. If a new share certificate is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity.

Williton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should ask before buying

    The best form of lease arrangement is where the freehold reversion is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this scenario the lessees enjoy control and even though a managing agent is frequently employed where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. Its a good idea to find out as much as you can regarding the managing agents as they will affect your use and enjoyment of the property. As the proprietor of a leasehold property you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to day to day matters such as the cleanliness of the communal areas. Enquire of other tenants what they think of their service. In conclusion, find out the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the appropriate party and specifically what it includes. Is the freehold owned collectively by the leaseholders?
