My wife and I have recently acquired a property in Treuddyn. We have noticed several issues with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Treuddyn?
The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Treuddyn. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller fills in a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information turns out to be misleading, then you may have a claim 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 Treuddyn.

I own a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Treuddyn. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Treuddyn and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
How does conveyancing in Treuddyn differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Treuddyn come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Treuddyn tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Treuddyn or who has acted in the same development.
