The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Stoke Park. Plenty of people will buy a property in Stoke Park, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Stoke Park. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an environmental search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Stoke Park with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it will impact my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Am I best advised to use a Stoke Park conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can carry out the legal work but her office is a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The benefit of a local Stoke Park conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Stoke Park conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.

My wife and I accepted an offer on a Stoke Park bungalow we inherited some years ago in 2011. I have over ten years conveyancing experience and, now retired, see no reason not to conduct my own conveyancing. The buyer's lawyer has informed me that their bank will not allow you to do your own conveyancing requiring the funds to be released via a solicitor's bank account.

Lending instructions to conveyancers from all mainstream lenders specify that If the seller is not legally represented the buyer’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be informed so that a decision can be made as to whether they are willing to move forward.
