Should my solicitor be making enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Bollington.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Bollington. Plenty of people will buy a property in Bollington, completely expectant 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, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Bollington. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a compensation claim stemming from an misleading response. The buyer’s solicitors may also commission an environmental report. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
I have a renovated Edwardian property in Bollington. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property.

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bollington and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
There are only Fifty years remaining on my flat in Bollington. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to track down the landlord. In some cases a specialist would be useful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document which can be used as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Bollington.
