Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in High Wycombe. The conventional set of property information forms supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate reply. The buyer’s solicitors may also carry out an enviro report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.
