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 conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance charges should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date.
