Will our lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Tottenham.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Tottenham. There are those who buy a property in Tottenham, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Tottenham. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Tottenham is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Tottenham are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tottenham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tottenham 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.

My wife and I are acquiring a garden flat in Tottenham. When we first instructed solicitor, we were told they were on all major UK lender panels. Our financial adviser contacted us just now to say that they are not on the Nationwide approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we just pick a new conveyancer that is on their approved list or do we cover the costs for separate representation, with Nationwide selecting their own preferred property lawyer.

Where you are acquiring a property needing a mortgage it is standard for the buyer’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the solicitor has to satisfy. Some building societies now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should call Nationwide to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Nationwide's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Tottenham lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancer into the equation.
