Will my solicitor be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Anlaby.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Anlaby. There are those who buy a house in Anlaby, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Anlaby. The standard information supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to find out whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect response. A buyer’s conveyancers should also order an enviro report. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be made.
