Will our solicitor be making enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Wandsworth.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Wandsworth. Some people will purchase a property in Wandsworth, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will figure out the risks in Wandsworth. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the vendor to discover whether the premises has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages stemming from an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers will also carry out an environmental report. This will reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be made.

My wife and I own a renovated Victorian house in Wandsworth. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. 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 Wandsworth and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
