Last October we completed a house move in Aberdaron. We have noticed several problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Aberdaron?
The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Aberdaron. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. If the information is misleading, then you may have a claim against the seller 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 Aberdaron.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Aberdaron?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Aberdaron your solicitor will request that you to provide them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the Local Authority Search. When the down payment is payable against the total price then this will be needed shortly prior to exchange of contracts. The final balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer a couple of days ahead of the completion date.
How does conveyancing in Aberdaron differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Aberdaron approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Aberdaron usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Aberdaron or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Aberdaron I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Aberdaron for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
