My partner and I have lately purchased a property in Snodland. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Snodland?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Snodland. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a form called a SPIF. If the information ends up being inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Snodland.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Snodland. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with your lender or they could be archived with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Snodland involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
