Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did you ever get your own survey done please?
No I'm afraid being a first time buyer I was a little nieve,I put my trust in estate agents appointed and solicitor appointed,at the time the housing market was not great . Was given a list of mortgages available and the one I wanted they said was withdrawn so was really only left with little choice at the time I had good credit rating and on approx 30,000 pa
Sadly it is a matter for you whether or not you accept any valuation and indeed you had your own option of getting a valuation or home buyers report and you did not.
Therefore you are unlikely to be able to succeed in a claim against them.
In any event if you are claiming negligence you have 3 years from the negligent act to bring a claim as per the Limitation Act and as such you would be out of time.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the answer I want to give, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks for answer Was taken in by three untrustworthy parties all working for the same cause. had I had not been first time buyer or had on hand advice from house owners genuine estate agents them im sure . Wouldn't be in negative equity for next ten years
Yes indeed and I am sorry.
