Will our conveyancer be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Gunnersbury.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Gunnersbury. Some people will acquire a property in Gunnersbury, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Gunnersbury. The standard information sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the seller to find out whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. The purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro search. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Gunnersbury I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Gunnersbury for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
