We are purchasing a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park who is on the Kent Reliance approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

The Roath Park conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Roath Park have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the TSB conveyancing panel and my previous Roath Park lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know 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 should appoint new lawyers that are on the TSB 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 lawyers should be in a position to help.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Roath Park 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer should be aware precisely where to locate all the relevant documentation so you can buy or sell your property without any difficulty. If copies can’t be found, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on the premises.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Roath Park I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Roath Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
