Will our conveyancer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Beckermet.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Beckermet. There are those who acquire a house in Beckermet, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Beckermet. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.

How does conveyancing in Beckermet differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Beckermet approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Beckermet tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Beckermet or who has acted in the same development.
