Last September we completed a house move in Bearsted. We have noticed several issues with the property which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Bearsted?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Bearsted. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller answers a form called a SPIF. answers provided is incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner 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 Bearsted.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Bearsted concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bearsted is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Bearsted are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bearsted you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bearsted may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
