Last February we completed a house move in Crook. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Crook?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Crook. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a document called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers proves to be misleading, then you may have a 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 Crook.
I opted to have a survey done on a house in Crook before appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

The primary upside of using a local Crook conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Crook know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were impressed that should outweigh using an unknown Crook conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
We have chosen a Crook conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (FTB’s) and have spotted in the terms and conditions that they are not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. Should I be concerned or is that standard with conveyancer?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancing practitioner don't lend money. They should be governed by the SRA, who dictate strict obligations regulating monies deposited by them.
