However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Banstead. The conventional set of property information forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the owner to find out whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect reply. The purchaser’s lawyers should also carry out an environmental report. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be made.
