Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Notting Hill. There are those who buy a house in Notting Hill, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Notting Hill. The standard information sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading response. The purchaser’s lawyers should also conduct an enviro report. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be made.

Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not typically primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
