The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Winchcombe. There are those who purchase a house in Winchcombe, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. 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 sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the buyer or by their conveyancers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Winchcombe. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the owner to determine whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s conveyancers may also order an enviro report. This should reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be conducted.

I'm buying my first flat in Winchcombe with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.
