Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Rainham. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to find out if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. A buyer’s lawyers will also order an environmental report. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.
