Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North London

My brother and I have lately purchased a property in North London. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in North London?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in North London. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information is 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 North London.

As a novice what is the most important number one tip you can give me concerning purchase conveyancing in North London?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in North London or throughout London is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and on occasion your lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in North London should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the process whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

Sometimes a potential adversary will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is contrary to your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
