I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Lloyds are being a right pain. The Battersea solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Will my solicitor be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Battersea.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Battersea. There are those who purchase a house in Battersea, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be carried out by the buyer or by their conveyancers which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Battersea. The standard information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the owner to determine if the property has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate response. The buyer’s solicitors should also order an environmental search. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be conducted.
I'm buying my first flat in Battersea with a loan from Halifax. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
