It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner completes a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. answers turns out to be misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim 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.

I own a semi-detached Victorian property in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

I am buying a new build house in Poppleton and Bishopthorpe benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it would put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
