My partner and I have lately bought a property in Hilperton. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Hilperton?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Hilperton. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner answers a form referred to as a SPIF. answers provided is inaccurate, 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 Hilperton.
Are the Hilperton conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Co-operative?
Hilperton conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Co-operative directly.
I am considering applying for a Clydesdale mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Hilperton with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Clydesdale ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, but Clydesdale would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
