The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. The purchaser’s solicitors may also order an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be made.
