Make sure you consult with a Solicitor who specifically deals with this area of the law.

A faulty conveyance can bring with it many implications, not least of which is the fact that your family home and your security may be put at risk. Even if your property is not affected, you are sure to be feeling at low ebb emotionally. Additionally, financial consequences can be severe.

Things that can go wrong

Unless you are a first time buyer, then your conveyance procedure is likely to involve both a purchase and a sale. Timing is critical, but there are many other things that can go wrong, even if your Solicitor has carried out the same process many times before.

Here are just a few examples of claims that can result from a failed or incorrect conveyance:

  • Title not being investigated
  • Restrictive Covenants not looked at
  • Rights of Way being missed
  • Building Regulations certificates not present
  • Planning problems
  • Failure to carry out full searches
  • Land Registry failures
  • Boundaries not being defined
  • Not removing Registered Charge or Mortgage
  • Not advising on the outcome of surveys/valuations
  • Not paying off the mortgage on the sold property

Of course, these are only a few ideas of things that can wrong; conveyancing is a complex process which is why, if it does go awry, you should consult an expert in the field of professional negligence claims against Solicitors.

Preparing your claim

Once you have found a Solicitor who can deal with conveyancing negligence to represent you, they will want to know full details of the case. You can expect to provide them with copies of all paperwork given to you by your Solicitor, plus dates and timings of events as they occurred. Conveyancing law is a specialised area hence the reason why your claims consultant will be totally knowledgeable; it will be up to him, or her, to convince the Solicitors insurance company that you have suffered as a result of incompetent actions or omissions and that you have incurred substantial and damaging losses.

By putting your case with our professional and specialist claims advisors from day one, you can rest assured that your case will be handled in both a timely and efficient manner. At the end of the day it is essential that you are reimbursed fairly and fully for all losses incurred, whether they be financial, emotional or practical.
