My partner and I have lately bought a house in Warfield. We have noticed several problems with the property which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Warfield?
The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Warfield. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers provided is misleading, you could possibly take legal action 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 Warfield.
How does conveyancing in Warfield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Warfield contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Warfield tend to buy the site, 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 property lawyers 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 Warfield or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Warfield I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Warfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
