My wife and I have lately acquired a house in North End. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been conducted as part of conveyancing in North End?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in North End. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner answers a document referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor 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 North End.

How does conveyancing in North End differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in North End come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in North End 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in North End or who has acted in the same development.
