Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Burnt Oak. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Burnt Oak, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property.

Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Burnt Oak.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Burnt Oak. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Burnt Oak - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
