Should my conveyancer be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Burnham On Crouch.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Burnham On Crouch. Some people will purchase a house in Burnham On Crouch, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Burnham On Crouch. The standard property information forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the seller to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser could bring a claim for damages resulting from an misleading response. The buyer’s lawyers should also carry out an enviro report. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be carried out.
