Last May we completed a house move in Totton. We have noticed several issues with the house which we suspect were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Totton?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Totton. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information provided is incorrect, 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 Totton.
