My wife and I have recently purchased a house in The Hyde. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been ordered as part of conveyancing in The Hyde?
The query is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in The Hyde. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a questionnaire referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action against the owner 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 The Hyde.
