Should my conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Cheadle.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Cheadle. Plenty of people will purchase a house in Cheadle, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the buyer or by their lawyers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Cheadle. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to find out if the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim resulting from an misleading reply. The purchaser’s lawyers may also conduct an enviro search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Cheadle I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Cheadle in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
