Will our conveyancer be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Godmanchester.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Godmanchester. Plenty of people will buy a house in Godmanchester, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the buyer or by their lawyers which will figure out the risks in Godmanchester. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual inquiry of the seller to discover whether the premises has ever been flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could bring a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s solicitors should also order an environmental report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be made.

I got the keys to my home on 8 March and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Godmanchester expressed confidence that it should be registered in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Godmanchester particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Godmanchester registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises thus registration formalities is not always an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Godmanchester I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Godmanchester for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
