Will my conveyancer be making enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Acle.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Acle. There are those who purchase a house in Acle, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Acle. The conventional set of property information forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the seller to find out if the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer could bring a claim for damages resulting from an misleading response. A buyer’s lawyers will also carry out an enviro report. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be made.

I am purchasing a new build house in Acle with a mortgage from Britannia. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the side-deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Britannia. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am attracted to a two flats in Acle both have in the region of fifty years remaining on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a right to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.
