Last December we completed a house move in Esher and Claygate. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Esher and Claygate?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Esher and Claygate. 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 seller answers a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is 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 Esher and Claygate.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Esher and Claygate I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Esher and Claygate for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
