Will our solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Wargrave.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Wargrave. Plenty of people will buy a house in Wargrave, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Wargrave. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a compensation claim resulting from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s conveyancers should also conduct an enviro report. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Wargrave I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Wargrave in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
