My brother and I have recently purchased a property in Tower Hill. 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 needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Tower Hill?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Tower Hill. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a form referred to as a SPIF. answers proves to be misleading, 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 Tower Hill.

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Tower Hill or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process.

Have purchased a a detached house in Tower Hill , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Tower Hill conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Tower Hill registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies.

Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property thus registration formalities is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Tower Hill I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tower Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
