Should my lawyer be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Bessacarr.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Bessacarr. Some people will buy a property in Bessacarr, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. 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 insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Bessacarr. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the vendor to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate answer. A buyer’s conveyancers will also carry out an enviro search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Bessacarr I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bessacarr for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
