Last March we completed a house move in Adlington. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Adlington?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Adlington. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a document referred to as a SPIF. If the information provided is misleading, then you may have a claim 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 Adlington.
At what point does exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Adlington and am I required to be at the solicitors office?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Adlington you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Adlington)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
A relative suggested that where I am purchasing in Adlington I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Adlington Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Adlington.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Adlington 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to find all the appropriate documentation so you may purchase or sell your property without any difficulty. If copies can’t be located, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your premises.
