Last January we completed a house move in Wennington. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Wennington?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Wennington. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller fills in a document known as a SPIF. answers turns out to be misleading, you may have a misrepresentation 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 Wennington.

My wife and I are selling our property in Wennington and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wennington. Having lived in Wennington for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
Have purchased a a detached house in Wennington , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Wennington conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Wennington registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm refinancing my primary property to a BTL mortgage with Clydesdale and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on further property. The area we are looking at is Wennington. Will your conveyancers be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the two deals?
Do use our search tool on this site to ensure that the solicitors are on the relevant lender panels. On the basis that they are your conveyancer should be able to tie up the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you conveyancer and communicate your desired outcome and needs.
