Last December we completed a house move in Bovey Tracey. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Bovey Tracey?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Bovey Tracey. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor completes a form called a SPIF. If the information 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 Bovey Tracey.

How does conveyancing in Bovey Tracey differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bovey Tracey come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Bovey Tracey usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bovey Tracey or who has acted in the same development.
