My partner and I have recently acquired a property in Yorkshire Dales. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Yorkshire Dales?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Yorkshire Dales. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers ends up being inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner 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 Yorkshire Dales.
Have completed on a a detached house in Yorkshire Dales , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Yorkshire Dales conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.
