It has taken forever and a day but a mortgage offer from Santander for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom apartment is coming by the end of next week. Are you able to recommend a cheap conveyancing law firm in Stoke Poges?

My partner and I have lately acquired a house in Stoke Poges. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we suspect were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Stoke Poges?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Stoke Poges. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim 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 Stoke Poges.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Stoke Poges
We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Stoke Poges conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
