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.

Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
