My partner and I have lately bought a property in Coniston. We have noticed several problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Coniston?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Coniston. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a document referred to as a SPIF. answers ends up being misleading, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Coniston.

I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Coniston. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to ascertain if these works are prohibited?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Coniston will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of works or need the consent of a 3rd party. Many additions require local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Coniston accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Coniston. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Bank of Ireland going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Coniston conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Coniston.
