Will my solicitor be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Totton.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Totton. Some people will purchase a house in Totton, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Totton. The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the vendor to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers will also commission an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.

How does conveyancing in Totton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Totton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Totton usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Totton or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Totton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Totton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Totton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.
