We are buying our first property. Our property lawyer has calledto enquire if we want to order supplemental conveyancing searches. As novices we are clueless as to what's recommended for conveyancing in Romsey

The range of Romsey conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the locality and risks, your general approach to risk.

Will our conveyancer be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Romsey.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Romsey. There are those who acquire a property in Romsey, fully aware 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, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Romsey. The conventional set of property information forms sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect response. The purchaser’s solicitors should also conduct an enviro search. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? 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. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
