If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect response. A purchaser’s lawyers will also commission an environmental report. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.

Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian property in St Columb. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?

The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in St Columb and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

My wife and I intend to buy our first house in St Columb. Conveyancing solicitor has been chosen. The broker suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the property was only built in 1997.

The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises was constructed over a decade ago the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may suffice. The report should highlight any apparent issues and recommend additional investigation if appropriate. Where there are any indications of problems obtain a full structural survey.
