Will our conveyancer be asking questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Shillington.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Shillington. Some people will buy a property in Shillington, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Shillington. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the vendor to discover whether the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. The buyer’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental search. This will higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be initiated.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Shillington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
