Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Betws Y Coed

My partner and I have lately purchased a house in Betws Y Coed. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Betws Y Coed?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Betws Y Coed. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be incorrect, 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 Betws Y Coed.

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Betws Y Coed can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • The majority of freeholders or Management Companies in Betws Y Coed charge for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Betws Y Coed. If there is a history of any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a flat where a dispute is ongoing. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Obtaining a duplicate share certificate is often a time consuming process and delays many a Betws Y Coed conveyancing deal. If a duplicate share is needed, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your lawyers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is less than 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale.
