My partner and I have just acquired a house in Sharnbrook. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Sharnbrook?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Sharnbrook. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a document known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information turns out to be inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action 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 Sharnbrook.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Sharnbrook. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?
It best that you clear the service charge as usual as all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
