Last December we completed a house move in Bootle. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Bootle?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Bootle. 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, a seller completes a document referred to as a SPIF. answers turns out to be misleading, 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 Bootle.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Bootle is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Bootle are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bootle you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bootle may determine 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 property.
