Last March we completed a house move in Walworth. We have noticed several issues with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Walworth?
The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Walworth. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers ends up being incorrect, then you may have a claim against the seller 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 Walworth.
Are the Walworth conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Aldermore?
Walworth conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Aldermore directly.
It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Walworth took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Walworth. I've discover a web site which seems to have the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

I only have 72 years remaining on my flat in Walworth. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to find the freeholder. On the whole an enquiry agent should be useful to conduct investigations and to produce a report to be used as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Walworth.

I need to consider estimates for conveyancing in Walworth from three conveyancer and decide on one. Am I right to ask them to hold tight until I have found somewhere to purchase.
You should only request your conveyancer to start work and order searches once the sales memorandum has been issued by the estate agent especially as Walworth conveyancing searches are a couple of hundred pounds.
