Will my conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Anstey.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Anstey. There are those who acquire a house in Anstey, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their lawyers which can figure out the risks in Anstey. The standard information given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading response. The purchaser’s lawyers should also conduct an enviro search. This should higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.
