Will our conveyancer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Brighton.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Brighton. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Brighton, 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, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Brighton. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages stemming from an misleading response. A purchaser’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental search. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
