You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Leominster and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the seller, selling agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Leominster should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose interest is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which should figure out the risks in Leominster. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual question of the seller to determine whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages stemming from an inaccurate response. A purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an environmental report. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be initiated.
