I plan on acquiring property in Battle. My Conveyancer is not on the bank solicitor list. Am I still permitted to continue with my Battle conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
You must appoint a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the legal work required if you take out a loan to purchase your property. The solicitor will conduct all the relevant due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in place. One could select a Battle solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the mortgage company approved list additional fees will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
My Battle solicitor has discovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he needs to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance right?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

The Battle conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Battle have without warning closed. I chose them because I had to have a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel and my previous Battle lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?
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 reasons beyond your control. 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 HSBC 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 may be able to assist.
