Furse Sanders Limited – Conveyancing, Wills & Probate Matters – Your Questions Answered

Did you have ‘LIVE’ Conveyancing, Wills, Probate or Trusts files you had instructed Furse Sanders to work on?  If so read on.


What has happened?

Furse Sanders Limited have been unable to continue acting for its clients in conveyancing, Wills, Probate, Trusts and Power of Attorney matters, due to a lack of capacity to undertake this type of work.

In order to ensure that your matter, is not delayed unnecessarily, Furse Sanders LIVE files have been transferred to Josiah Hincks Solicitors in Leicestershire.  You will have been written to during May/June 2018 by Furse Sanders informing you of this and from June/July Josiah Hincks has followed this up for all Live Files whereby clients have not contacted us.

Can I use a firm more local to me instead?

Yes you can. Josiah Hincks are simply holding Furse Sanders LIVE files pending receipt of signed instructions. If you want to use a firm local to you instead, then providing they are not conflicted (that is acting for the other party in your transaction) then they can take the file over. You will need to pay for work carried out by Furse Sanders to date, and Josiah Hincks will let you know what that fee will be before releasing your file.
