Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stamford

Last December we completed a house move in Stamford. We have noticed several problems with the property which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Stamford?

The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Stamford. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a document known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is incorrect, 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 Stamford.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Stamford. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Stamford - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
