My brother and I have lately bought a property in Wareham. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Wareham?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Wareham. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers turns out to be inaccurate, 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 Wareham.

It is is a decade since I purchased my property in Wareham. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down the title documents. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Wareham involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Just bought a detached house in Wareham , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Wareham conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in Wareham registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Wareham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wareham contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Wareham typically acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wareham or who has acted in the same development.
