Will my solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Lewisham.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Lewisham. There are those who buy a house in Lewisham, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Lewisham. The conventional set of property information 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 discover if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. The purchaser’s solicitors will also commission an environmental report. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.
