My partner and I have just acquired a property in Abbots Bromley. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Abbots Bromley?
The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Abbots Bromley. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. answers ends up being misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Abbots Bromley.
I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Abbots Bromley. The Abbots Bromley property was put into my name in November. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
We expect to receive a AIP from UBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Abbots Bromley solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Abbots Bromley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.
My wife and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Abbots Bromley and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a home loan with Kent Reliance.
It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
