My brother and I have just acquired a property in Kirkby Stephen. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. answers turns out to be inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Kirkby Stephen.
My solicitor has informed me that lack of building regulations insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Kirkby Stephen conveyancing?
The right level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
I'm the single recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Kirkby Stephen. The Kirkby Stephen property was put into my name in April. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this provision is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

You can instruct a conveyancing practitioner now and ask them to open a file for you. This will kickstart: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to submit the draft contract. However, do not ask your property lawyer to order searches until you receive your valuation report via Bank of Ireland and you are happy to proceed.
