The Gospel Oak conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Gospel Oak have suddenly shut down. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my previous Gospel Oak lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT on account. What are my options?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should 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. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Gospel Oak. My financial adviser suggested a lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £200. Soon after, the property lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

You are free to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that many lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your house move.
