The Accrington conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Accrington have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my family Accrington lawyer was not. I paid them funds in advance. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would 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 Yorkshire BS 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 what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Accrington agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Accrington. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with UBS going?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Accrington conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Accrington is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Accrington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Accrington you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Accrington may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
