Should my lawyer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Caersws.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Caersws. Some people will purchase a house in Caersws, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Caersws. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the seller to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. The buyer’s conveyancers may also carry out an environmental report. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be made.

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Caersws from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Caersws can be avoided where you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • Many freeholders or Management Companies in Caersws levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in Caersws. If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Caersws state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such works. If you dont have the consents to hand do not contact the landlord without checking with your lawyer before hand. A minority of Caersws leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers.
