Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Chulmleigh. Plenty of people will acquire a house in Chulmleigh, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

The standard information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the vendor to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s solicitors may also commission an enviro report. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be conducted.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Chulmleigh I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Chulmleigh in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
