Will our lawyer be raising enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Cotham.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Cotham. There are those who purchase a property in Cotham, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Cotham. The standard information supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to determine if the property has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages resulting from an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers should also commission an environmental search. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be carried out.

I work for a reputable estate agency in Cotham where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Cotham conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Cotham Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries before buying

    Best to be warned whether changing the roof or some other major work is due in the near future to be shared between the leaseholders and will materially impact the level of the maintenance charges or require a specific invoice. Is there a share of the freehold? Is anyone aware of any major works in the planning that could add a premium to the maintenance charges?

Should I be concerned if there is a problem with one of the searches for our conveyancing in Cotham?

Ordinarily, almost all issues arising from Cotham conveyancing search results can be dealt with ahead of completion or title insurance may be obtained. You need to remember that although you intend on buying the premises and may be willing to live with the search results, your lender may not, and when all said and done have the final decision.
