Will our conveyancer be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Shildon.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Shildon. Plenty of people will acquire a house in Shildon, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Shildon. The conventional set of information supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the owner to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect reply. A buyer’s lawyers will also order an environmental search. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be made.
