My partner and I have just purchased a house in Brynford. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Brynford?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Brynford. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a form known as a SPIF. If the information ends up being inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action 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 Brynford.

I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Brynford. Does the conveyancer arrange an energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a required component of moving house. An EPC needs to be to hand prior to the property being advertised. This is not something that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Brynford conveyancing solicitor they may be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established Brynford assessors
I just acquired a flat at auction in Brynford. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?
Having exchanged you should retain a conveyancing lawyer soon as you will have a tight a drop dead date to complete the property. An auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction pack.

In the case of leasehold premises the auction pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork pertinent to leasehold premises. You need to give this to the conveyancer working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Brynford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Brynford are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Brynford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brynford may ascertain 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 residence.
