Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Macclesfield?

It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Macclesfield. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a questionnaire referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers provided is incorrect, 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.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Macclesfield off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Lloyds. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
