Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Silvertown

At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Silvertown and do I need to attend the solicitors office?

Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Silvertown you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the conveyancer to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Silvertown)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

The Silvertown conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Silvertown have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel and my previous Silvertown lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What are my options?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. 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 Leeds Building Society 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 help.
