My brother and I have just bought a property in Killamarsh. We have noticed several issues with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Killamarsh?
The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Killamarsh. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a questionnaire known as a SPIF. answers ends up being 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 Killamarsh.
How does conveyancing in Killamarsh differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Killamarsh contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Killamarsh typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Killamarsh or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Killamarsh is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Killamarsh are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Killamarsh you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Killamarsh may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
