As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a document called a SPIF. If the information proves to be incorrect, 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.

The CML Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Ashton In Makerfield.
