My wife and I have recently purchased a property in Heddon On The Wall. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Heddon On The Wall?
The query is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Heddon On The Wall. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a document referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action 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 Heddon On The Wall.
