My partner and I have just bought a house in Wednesfield. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out for conveyancing in Wednesfield?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Wednesfield. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a document known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be incorrect, 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 Wednesfield.
Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian property in Wednesfield. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Virgin Money. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wednesfield and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Wednesfield is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Wednesfield 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 Wednesfield you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wednesfield may ascertain 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 property.
