They were on acting for me because I had to have a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and my preferred Abercarn lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away 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 should appoint new lawyers that are on the Virgin Money 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.

I suspect that he will just be requested to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the conveyancing practitioner however he is worried it could delay the home move. Is it worth updating the title documents for the property?

You are not required to update the title for the property providing you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.

The purchaser’s solicitor should review the land registry information and need evidence to prove the name change for instance marriage certificates.
