It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Fleet. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a questionnaire known as a SPIF. If the information proves to be misleading, then you may have a claim against the vendor 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 Fleet.
