Should our solicitor be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Frant.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Frant. There are those who buy a property in Frant, 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, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out 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 checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Frant. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the seller to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer could issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s conveyancers may also commission an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Frant. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Frant
Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Frant is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Frant are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Frant you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Frant may determine 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 premises.
