Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sherborne

Last August we completed a house move in Sherborne. We have noticed several issues with the house which we consider were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been carried out for conveyancing in Sherborne?

The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Sherborne. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor fills in a form known as a SPIF. answers proves to be inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Sherborne.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Sherborne is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Sherborne are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Sherborne you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Sherborne may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Me and my partner are FTB’s just having agreed a price on a property in Sherborne, and are about to get solicitors appointed. We have used the different comparison tools and the quotes are from all across the the UK. Is it important to have a Sherborne conveyancing practitioner local to our potential house? We are willing to do everything over the internet, but I assume at some point we may be required to physically go into the solicitor's office to sign papers?

The conveyancer does not need to be in Sherborne, but opting for local means that you have the option to attend their offices if you need to, by way of example, if a signature is needed urgently. In addition, a Sherborne solicitor is likely to be familiar with local agents and (if the vendor has chosen a local conveyancer) with them, which will help keep things moving faster.
