The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Waterbeach. There are those who buy a house in Waterbeach, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Waterbeach. The standard information given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading reply. The purchaser’s solicitors may also conduct an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be made.
