My partner and I have recently acquired a house in Copmanthorpe. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Copmanthorpe?
The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Copmanthorpe. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers provided is inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action 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 Copmanthorpe.

I am purchasing my first flat in Copmanthorpe benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my lawyer about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with TSB. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
