Will our solicitor be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Camborne.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Camborne. There are those who purchase a house in Camborne, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Camborne. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. The buyer’s conveyancers will also order an enviro search. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be conducted.
I am buying my first flat in Camborne with a mortgage from National Westminster Bank. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Camborne. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
