Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Clydesdale but by your Formby property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Clydesdale panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some practices include it on their overall fee.

Will my conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Formby.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Formby. Some people will buy a house in Formby, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell 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 number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their lawyers which can figure out the risks in Formby. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual question of the seller to find out whether the property has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers will also order an environmental search. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be made.
