Should my conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Bermondsey.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Bermondsey. Plenty of people will buy a house in Bermondsey, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Bermondsey. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer could issue a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect reply. The buyer’s solicitors will also commission an environmental report. This should indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.
It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Bermondsey took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Should one as executor remove a deceased person's details from the title deeds for a property in Bermondsey?
If a Bermondsey property is co-owned and one of the owners passes away, the name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would just be required to evidence why the co owner is missing from the contract, typically this takes the form of the probate documents.
With the aim of making things smoother in the future you can arrange to have the deceased name erased from the title by submitting an application to HMLR with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
