However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or dispose of the property.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Bickley. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the seller to find out if the property has suffered from flooding.

The buyer’s conveyancers will also conduct an enviro report. This will higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be initiated.

If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Bickley is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bickley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bickley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bickley may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
