Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Spondon

Last March we completed a house move in Spondon. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Spondon?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Spondon. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor completes a form known as a SPIF. If the information is misleading, 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 Spondon.

Builders have put forward a conveyancing practitioner and I've received a quote from them. It's almost £300 cheaper than my family Spondon property lawyer. Should I use them?

Developers frequently have lists of solicitors who are quick and who know the developer’s paperwork and property lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to use their approved solicitor for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a builder won't put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they want exchange in 28 days. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested property lawyer is that they may be reluctant to fight for your interests at the risk of alienating the sellers. If you worry that this may be the case you should stick with your high street Spondon property lawyer.
