Last April we completed a house move in Petts Wood. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Petts Wood?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Petts Wood. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner completes a questionnaire referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is 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 Petts Wood.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Petts Wood
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
