My partner and I have lately purchased a property in Seaton. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Seaton?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Seaton. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a document known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers turns out 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 Seaton.

We are aiming to move home in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Seaton. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent however this should only happen once the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. You can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Seaton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Seaton.
We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from Aldermore as we intend to carry out improvements to our home in Seaton. Are we obliged to select a high street Seaton solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Aldermore do not ordinarily require firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore list.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being pedantic. The Seaton solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Seaton?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Seaton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Been reading online that Seaton solicitors are more costly than licensed conveyancers in Seaton when it comes to buying a property. So is it better if I use a conveyancer or a solicitor if I am buying for my home move in Seaton.
When it comes to conveyancing in Seaton the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
