My wife and I are acquiring a newly built apartment in Welling and my solicitor is informing me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the seller.

Should my conveyancer be asking questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Welling.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Welling. Some people will acquire a house in Welling, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their solicitors which should figure out the risks in Welling. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the owner to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. The purchaser’s conveyancers will also order an enviro report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.

I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Welling for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
