Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Beckton

My brother and I have lately purchased a property in West Beckton. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we suspect were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in West Beckton?

The query is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in West Beckton. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire known as a SPIF. answers provided is incorrect, 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 West Beckton.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in West Beckton. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

I've read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local West Beckton solicitor - who is on the Principality conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own West Beckton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
