Buying or selling a house can be a very stressful time. Placing your faith in a solicitor who ultimately lets you down through negligence can add to this stress and cause you to lose money.
Examples of Conveyancing Negligence
You may be entitled to make a conveyancing negligence claim if your solicitor failed to:
- Investigate Good Title.
- Advise on adverse or missing rights of way.
- Check a new property has planning permission.
- Check for a building regulation certificate for partial works or the entire building as appropriate.
- Advise on environmental or planning issues which may have affected the property and/or your decision to purchase.
- Check that the entire property is within the seller’s title.
- Check for provisions for maintenance of roads and sewers.
- Carry out the usual searches and enquiries.
- Raise requisition on title.
- Provide adequate advice regarding the mortgagees conditions.
