My partner and I have recently acquired a property in Wollaston. We have noticed several problems with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been ordered for conveyancing in Wollaston?
The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Wollaston. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a document referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers is misleading, 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 Wollaston.
