My wife and I have lately purchased a property in Clacton On Sea. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Clacton On Sea?
The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Clacton On Sea. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information is misleading, then you may have a claim against the seller 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 Clacton On Sea.

The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

It is improbable the sellers are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives.
