Should my solicitor be raising enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Blaina.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Blaina. Plenty of people will buy a house in Blaina, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, 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, however there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Blaina. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser could commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s lawyers should also order an enviro search. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Blaina is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Blaina you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blaina may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
