My wife and I have recently purchased a house in Noak Hill. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out for conveyancing in Noak Hill?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Noak Hill. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a form known as a SPIF. If the information proves to be misleading, 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 Noak Hill.

How does conveyancing in Noak Hill differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Noak Hill contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Noak Hill typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Noak Hill or who has acted in the same development.
