Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wisbech

Should my conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Wisbech.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Wisbech. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Wisbech, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Wisbech. The standard property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the seller to find out whether the premises has historically flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro report. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.

How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Wisbech contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Wisbech typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Wisbech is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Wisbech are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wisbech you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wisbech may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
