Much to our surprise we have been told by our broker that my Chathill lawyer is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I be sure whether this is correct?

The Chathill conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my purchase in Chathill have suddenly shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my previous Chathill lawyer was not. I cut them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What are my options?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know 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 will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton 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.

The solicitors handling our conveyancing in Chathill has forwarded documents to review that reveal that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all property in Chathill should be registered?

Although most properties in Chathill are now registered with HMLR there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Chathill that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Chathill property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Chathill conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with such matters but where uncertainty reigns the standard advice nowadays is for the current owners to register the title first and then deal with the transfer to the buyer - this will predictably cause a significant delay.
