Will my solicitor be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Toddington.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Toddington. There are those who acquire a house in Toddington, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Toddington. The standard property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the owner to find out whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. The buyer’s lawyers may also order an enviro search. This will indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Toddington is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Toddington are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Toddington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Toddington 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 residence.
I was advised by a number of property agents in Toddington to select a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site over and above another?
We refuse to give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
What are the distinct benefits to choosing a high street conveyancing practitioner in Toddington
Home movers in Toddington prefer a local solicitor so that they can attend the firm’s offices in the event that they have concerns, and to sign mortgage deeds without using the Royal Mail.
One could argue that there exists a slight benefit in selecting a property lawyer local to the house you are purchasing, due to the knowledge of the area and possible local issues - yet this is moot. Most conveyancers are now over the web and could be any place in the world.
