This fee is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Brockley solicitor. Numerous firms on the Aldermore panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.

Should our lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Brockley.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Brockley. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Brockley, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Brockley. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser may bring a compensation claim stemming from an incorrect response. A buyer’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental report. This should reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be conducted.

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Brockley. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to pull out.
