Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Waltham Cross

Last September we completed a house move in Waltham Cross. We have noticed several issues with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Waltham Cross?

The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Waltham Cross. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems.

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 Waltham Cross.
