The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Carshalton. Some people will acquire a house in Carshalton, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their conveyancers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Carshalton. The conventional set of property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers will also order an environmental report. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.

My partner and I expecting to complete on the purchase a property in Carshalton but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated recompense from the current proprietors of £2k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process yet the mortgage company will not agree to this. Why were they informed?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on a bank approved list is duty bound to advise the mortgage company of any changes to the purchase price. In the event that you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the reduction to your bank then they would need to refrain from acting for you and the lender.
