My brother and I have recently bought a property in Canton. We have noticed several problems with the house which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been carried out for conveyancing in Canton?
The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Canton. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor fills in a document called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers proves to be inaccurate, then you may have a 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 Canton.
Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Canton , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Canton conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are addressed.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Canton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
