Should my solicitor be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Aldeburgh.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Aldeburgh. Some people will purchase a property in Aldeburgh, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Aldeburgh. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. The purchaser’s conveyancers may also conduct an environmental search. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be made.
Am I right to be suspicious that 3rd parties that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Aldeburgh conveyancing firm?
As is the case with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may suggest lawyers to choose. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers have an approved list of conveyancers you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
