My partner and I have lately bought a house in Spennymoor. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Spennymoor?
The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Spennymoor. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner completes a form known as a SPIF. If the information ends up being 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 Spennymoor.

How does conveyancing in Spennymoor differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Spennymoor contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Spennymoor tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Spennymoor or who has acted in the same development.
