Norman Saville and their web site UKConvey (www.ukconvey.com) have been intervened or closed down by the SRA. This happened on the 5th of July 2010 but news is only really just leaking out into the conveyancing community and on blogs.
Specifically the SRA has suspended the practising certificates of Ms Nahar and Ms Malik-Masud - according to a letter we have seen signed by Paul Wightman, Intervention Officer of the SRA.
This will leave the many customers of Norman Saville and Co in difficulty as they will now experience delays with their house sale or purchase transaction and they may have paid out payments on account.

Fridaysmove ended up helping hundreds of Wolstenholmes customers out of their conveyancing predicament and we are braced for a similar situation with this SRA intervention.
