Last March we completed a house move in Waterbeach. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Waterbeach?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Waterbeach. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor completes a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be 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 Waterbeach.

When will exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Waterbeach and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Waterbeach you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the law practices we work with offer a national conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Waterbeach)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Waterbeach off the council. I have a mortgage offer with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Waterbeach is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Waterbeach are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Waterbeach you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Waterbeach may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
