The Keswick conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Keswick have without warning closed. They were on acting for me because I had to have a firm on the UBS conveyancing panel and my family Keswick lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they advise the vendors 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 will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the UBS 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 assist.
I am assisting my step-mother sell her property in Keswick. Does the conveyancer commission an energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s remained a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is advertised. This is not a task that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Keswick conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with reputable Keswick providers
We expect to receive a AIP from Virgin Money this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Virgin Money recommend any Keswick solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Keswick solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Virgin Money through the process.
Intending to buy a apartment in Keswick. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Keswick property lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.

I am employed by a long established estate agency in Keswick where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales put at risk due to short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Keswick conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
