Last July we completed a house move in Cinderford. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Cinderford?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Cinderford. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is incorrect, 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 Cinderford.
