Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Borrowash. There are those who buy a house in Borrowash, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Borrowash. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also carry out an environmental search. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be conducted.
