The Witham conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Witham have suddenly shut down. I only went with them because I needed a lawyer on the TSB conveyancing panel and my preferred Witham lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them 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 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 solicitors may be able to help.

Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments became a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy assessment should be commissioned in advance of the property being marketed. It is not a task that solicitors normally organise. Where you are instructing a Witham conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable local accredited person

Please help - my lawyer says that lack of building regulations insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Witham conveyancing?

The appropriate level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Halifax and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Witham on 11/3/2021, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Witham is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Witham are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Witham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Witham may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Is it best to choose a Witham conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal work however they are based approximately 350kilometers away.

The benefit of a local Witham conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, present your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were happy that should trump using an unfamiliar Witham conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
