The Carshalton conveyancing firm that just started acting on my house acquisition in Carshalton have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and my family Carshalton lawyer was not. I issued them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know 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 Coventry 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 lawyers may be able to help.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Carshalton ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Carshalton. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Carshalton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I am the leaseholder of a a ground floor purpose built flat in Carshalton. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium payable for the purchase of the freehold?
if there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the LVT to judgment on the sum to be paid.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Carshalton flat is 21 & 23 Carshalton Grove in May 2009. the Tribunal adopted the figures presented as the premiums payable by the Applicant i.e. a total of £20,750. This case related to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 72 years.
