The Hale conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Hale have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and my preferred Hale lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT in advance. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors 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 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 solicitors may be able to assist.
Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the primary reason for stalling in Hale conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

How does conveyancing in Hale differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Hale contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Hale typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hale or who has acted in the same development.
