My partner and I have recently acquired a property in Camborne. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches.

As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a form referred to as a SPIF. answers is inaccurate, 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 Camborne.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Camborne garden flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We used a Camborne conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
The lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Camborne do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Camborne - Examples of Questions you should ask before buying
Most Camborne leasehold flats will be liable to pay a service charge for maintenance of the block levied on behalf of the management company. Where you purchase the property you will have to meet this amount, usually periodically during the year. This may vary from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for bigger purpose-built blocks. In all probability there will be a ground rent for you to pay yearly, ordinarily this is not a exorbitant figure, say around £50-£100 but you need to enquire it because sometimes it could be surprisingly expensive. It is important to be aware whether window replacement or some other significant cost is pending that will be shared amongst the tenants and will materially impact the level of the maintenance costs or necessitate a specific invoice. Where a Camborne lease has no more than 80 years it will impact the salability of the flat. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this will be. Remember, in most cases you will be be obliged to have owned the residence for a couple of years in order to be entitled to exercise a lease extension.
