Last March we completed a house move in East Dean. We have noticed several issues with the house which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in East Dean?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in East Dean. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor 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 East Dean.

How does conveyancing in East Dean differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in East Dean contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in East Dean tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in East Dean or who has acted in the same development.
