Will our conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Harpenden.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Harpenden. There are those who purchase a property in Harpenden, completely expectant 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 get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should figure out the risks in Harpenden. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to find out if the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser may bring a compensation claim stemming from an incorrect response. A purchaser’s lawyers should also carry out an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be initiated.

The deeds to my property can not be found. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Harpenden 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

If duplicates can’t be located, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your property.
