Should our conveyancer be raising enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Fleet.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Fleet. There are those who acquire a property in Fleet, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will figure out the risks in Fleet. The standard information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages resulting from an misleading response. A buyer’s lawyers should also carry out an enviro search. This will higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be carried out.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Fleet is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Fleet are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Fleet you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fleet may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my aunt I am selling a house in Monmouth but reside in Fleet. My conveyancer (based 300 kilometers awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Fleet who can attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Fleet based

There are plenty of houses in Fleet on unadopted lanes. My husband and I are acquiring such a house. Are there any advantages to purchasing a house on a private road?

Fleet conveyancing solicitors will be used to dealing propertieson unadopted roads. Your conveyancer should review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a residents association that owners pay into for the upkeep of the road. Where there is one, the road should be maintained and look better than council maintained.
