Last August we completed a house move in Aldridge. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we suspect were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Aldridge?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Aldridge. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a document called a SPIF. answers turns out to be incorrect, then you may have a 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 Aldridge.
Will our conveyancer be making enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Aldridge.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Aldridge. There are those who acquire a property in Aldridge, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Aldridge. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to find out if the property has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may bring a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be carried out.
I purchased a renovated Edwardian house in Aldridge. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Britannia. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Aldridge and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
