My partner and I have just purchased a house in Warrington. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Warrington?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Warrington. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be 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 Warrington.
