Will our solicitor be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Biggin Hill.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Biggin Hill. There are those who acquire a house in Biggin Hill, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Biggin Hill. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual question of the seller to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past and is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate reply. The buyer’s solicitors may also commission an enviro search. This will higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Biggin Hill took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am thinking of appointing a conveyancing practitioner in Biggin Hill for my house move. Is it possible to review a solicitor's complaints history with the profession’s regulator?

Finally our conveyancing in Biggin Hill completes this Friday, however the owners I am buying from wants to move out 24 hours later at at 2pm. Should I agree to such a plan?
