Last February we completed a house move in Mablethorpe. We have noticed several issues with the property which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Mablethorpe?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Mablethorpe. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller answers a document called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the seller 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 Mablethorpe.
