Should our lawyer be making enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Birch and Middleton.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Birch and Middleton. Plenty of people will purchase a house in Birch and Middleton, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if 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 as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Birch and Middleton. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect answer. A purchaser’s solicitors may also conduct an environmental report. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be made.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Birch and Middleton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not usually primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
