The Hither Green conveyancing firm that I appointed last week on my purchase in Hither Green have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a lawyer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my family Hither Green lawyer was not. I paid them funds in advance. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would 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 Yorkshire 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 should be in a position to help.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hither Green prior to retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on such a premises.

My father has suggested that I use his conveyancing solicitors in Hither Green. Do I follow his advice?

No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have experience in using the firm that you are contemplating using.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two maisonettes in Hither Green both have approximately forty five years left on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.

After years of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Hither Green. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to arrive at the price.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Hither Green premises is 18 Handen Road in April 2013. On 26 October 2012 District Judge Zimmels sitting at the Lambeth County Court made a Vesting Order that the Applicants be granted the right to acquire the freehold upon such terms and at such price determined by the LVT. The Tribunal arrived a figure of £39,535 as a valuation for the enfranchisement. This case affected 3 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69.05 years.
