Should our conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Maulden.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Maulden. Some people will acquire a property in Maulden, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Maulden. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the owner to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.
