The Ripon conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in Ripon have without warning closed. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my previous Ripon lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for £250 in advance. What should be my next steps?

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 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 should appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton 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.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Ripon completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Ripon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ripon approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Ripon typically acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Ripon or who has acted in the same development.

Nearly all properties in Ripon should show up. Have you endevoured to search to just the postcode. Normally it should identify all the premises inside the postcode. Where registered it will show up with a title number. Where they bought fifty years ago it's conceivable it may be not yet registered.
