Last February we completed a house move in Carisbrooke. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Carisbrooke?

The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Carisbrooke. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor fills in a document referred to as a SPIF. answers is misleading, you could possibly take legal action 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 Carisbrooke.

As a FTB what is the most important number one tip you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Carisbrooke?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Carisbrooke or throughout Isle Of Wight is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for friction between you and others involved in the transaction. For instance, the seller, estate agent and even potentially a bank. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Carisbrooke is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose interest is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a potential adversary will attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Carisbrooke conveyancing solicitors were selected. How long does it take for TSB to send the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have TSB done the survey? Have you informed TSB as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the TSB conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Carisbrooke. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

My sealed bid on a property in Carisbrooke has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Carisbrooke. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with HSBC started?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Carisbrooke conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the HSBC approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

My business partner and I are looking to lease a unit on the high street. Can you recommend conveyancers offering no-sale-no charges for commercial conveyancing in Carisbrooke for under £1,200?

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Carisbrooke

We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to use your own,trusted Carisbrooke conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
