Should my solicitor be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Godmanchester.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Godmanchester. There are those who buy a property in Godmanchester, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Godmanchester. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate reply. The buyer’s lawyers will also conduct an enviro search. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be made.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Godmanchester?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Godmanchester. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Godmanchester. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Godmanchester

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Godmanchester

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Godmanchester conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.

We yesterday discovered that one of the partners of the law firm acting on the purchase conveyancing in Godmanchester is related to the vendor. Is this allowed?

As long as there is no conflict of interest this should be fine. If you are needing mortgage finance then the bank may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific instructions on this. For example for RBS - Direct Line as of 27/2/2024, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

No, your firm may not act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower. However, your firm may act if a separate fee earner or separate partner within the firm acts for us
