The New Barnet conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in New Barnet have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I had to have a firm on the UBS conveyancing panel and my preferred New Barnet lawyer was not. I sent 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 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 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 may be able to help.

I am the sole recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in New Barnet. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in December. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this provision principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

Is it the case that all New Barnet CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Lloyds conveyancing list of approved firms?

Some major banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

About to purchase flat in New Barnet. 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 Aldermore 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 New Barnet conveyancer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of obstruction in New Barnet conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in New Barnet. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you discharge the service charge as usual as all ground rent and service invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Despite our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in negotiating a lease extension in New Barnet. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Where there is a missing landlord or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a New Barnet residence is Flat 2 2 Netherfield Road in April 2010. The Tribunale held that premium payable for a 90 year extension to the existing Lease should be £7,705. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.
