Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Carshalton. There are those who buy a property in Carshalton, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises.

If flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect response. The buyer’s solicitors may also carry out an enviro report. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be initiated.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Carshalton

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your preferred Carshalton conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

I'm selling a property in Carshalton. I can find my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
