Should our conveyancer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Billesdon.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Billesdon. Some people will buy a property in Billesdon, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side 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 premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Billesdon. The standard property information forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser may issue a compensation claim resulting from an incorrect reply. The buyer’s solicitors should also carry out an environmental report. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be conducted.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Billesdon registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not typically top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
