Last November we completed a house move in Swinton. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Swinton?
The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Swinton. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is misleading, 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 Swinton.

There are plenty of short leases in Swinton. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

This is due to the fact that on completion the funds will be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s lawyer and currently this can only take place on a working day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
