Will my lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Braunstone.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Braunstone. Some people will acquire a property in Braunstone, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. 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 can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which should figure out the risks in Braunstone. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages resulting from an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s solicitors should also carry out an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be initiated.

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
