Should our lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Belgravia.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Belgravia. Some people will purchase a property in Belgravia, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Belgravia. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect response. The buyer’s conveyancers will also order an environmental search. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be carried out.

How does conveyancing in Belgravia differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Belgravia contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Belgravia usually acquire the land, 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 conveyancers 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 Belgravia or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint the agent's recommended conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Belgravia

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Belgravia conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
