Last March we completed a house move in Witham. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Witham?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Witham. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a document referred to as a SPIF. If the information provided is inaccurate, then you may have a claim 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 Witham.

Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Witham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Witham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
