The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Birchgrove. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems.

If the information proves to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action 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 Birchgrove.
