My wife and I have recently bought a house in Eastwood. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Eastwood?
The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Eastwood. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a form known as a SPIF. If the information proves to be inaccurate, 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 Eastwood.
Can your site be used to locate a Conveyancing solicitor in Eastwood even if I’m not purchasing or selling a house, for example where I intend to acquire an office in Eastwood with a mortgage from Skipton Building Society?

We are selling our apartment in Eastwood. Does my conveyancer have to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Eastwood
We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Eastwood conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
