Last March we completed a house move in Bethesda. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Bethesda?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Bethesda. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner answers a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information turns out to be inaccurate, 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 Bethesda.
As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Bethesda what’s the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Bethesda
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Bethesda or throughout Gwynedd is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion the bank. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Bethesda an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the process whose responsibility is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.

As an example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do something that is against your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
