My partner and I have recently bought a house in Ramsbottom. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we consider were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Ramsbottom?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Ramsbottom. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be misleading, 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 Ramsbottom.

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
My husband and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from RBS as we want to conduct a loft conversion to our property in Ramsbottom. Are we obliged to choose a bricks and mortar Ramsbottom solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
RBS do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS conveyancing panel.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Ramsbottom. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Ramsbottom solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
