There are those who purchase a house in Arlesey, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises.

The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Arlesey with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Clydesdale. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
