Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Bridlington. Some people will purchase a house in Bridlington, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that may be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which should figure out the risks in Bridlington. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the owner to find out whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s solicitors may also carry out an enviro report. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be carried out.

How does conveyancing in Bridlington differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Bridlington approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Bridlington typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bridlington or who has acted in the same development.

Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Bridlington?

Conveyancing - in Bridlington or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the problems prior to you move in.
