Should our conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Cheshunt.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Cheshunt. Plenty of people will buy a house in Cheshunt, completely expectant 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 get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Cheshunt. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the seller to find out whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the property has been flooded in past and is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply.

How does conveyancing in Cheshunt differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Cheshunt contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Cheshunt typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Cheshunt or who has acted in the same development.
