In a situation where you are under a tight deadline for your conveyancing it is highly recommended that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will have local relationships and knowledge.

The Camelford conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Camelford have without warning shut down. I chose them because I needed a firm on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and my previous Camelford lawyer was not. I issued them a cheque for £250 in advance. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately 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 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. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.
