Should my lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Colwyn Bay.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Colwyn Bay. Plenty of people will buy a property in Colwyn Bay, completely expectant 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 get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Colwyn Bay. The standard property information forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the owner to determine whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading response. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro search. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Colwyn Bay I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Colwyn Bay suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
