Should our solicitor be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in South West London.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in South West London. There are those who buy a property in South West London, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain 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 buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in South West London. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect response. The buyer’s conveyancers may also order an enviro report. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be carried out.

I have todaybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in South West London for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of South West London conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. South West London is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in South West London are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside South West London you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in South West London may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
