Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be 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 Camelford.
