Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Henbury

My partner and I have recently acquired a house in Henbury. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Henbury?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Henbury. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a questionnaire known as a SPIF. If the information ends up being misleading, you could possibly take legal action 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 Henbury.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Henbury I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Henbury suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

My step-mother completed her conveyancing in Henbury ten years past. She has got married, divorced and has recently married again. She intends to sell the house next moths. I believe she will just be requested to supply copies of her marriage papers to the property lawyer however she is anxious it could delay the house sale. Should she instruct a property lawyer to update the title documents for the house?

You are not required to bring up to date the title for the property on the basis that you have the proof required to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.

Any buyer’s conveyancing practitioner will review the land registry details and request evidence to prove the name change e.g. marriage certificates.
