Last April we completed a house move in Crediton. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Crediton?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Crediton. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a form referred to as a SPIF. answers proves to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action 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 Crediton.
