My brother and I have recently purchased a house in Exminster. We have noticed several problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Exminster?
The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Exminster. 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, a property owner completes a document referred to as a SPIF. answers is incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Exminster.

I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Exminster. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Principality?
Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. You need not do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.
