My brother and I have lately bought a house in Ettington. We have noticed several issues with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Ettington?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Ettington. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are designed 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 provided 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 Ettington.

I am considering applying for a Yorkshire BS mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Ettington with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire BS ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Yorkshire BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

As far as conveyancing in Ettington is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so registration formalities is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
