Will my conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Aston.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Aston. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Aston, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their conveyancers which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Aston. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual question of the owner to discover whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading answer. The buyer’s conveyancers may also commission an environmental report. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be conducted.

Have purchased a a detached house in Aston , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Aston conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Aston is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the property so post completion formalities is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
