It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Comberton. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't find my title documents. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be with the lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Comberton relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
Are the BSA planning on creating a online directory to to identify firms on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Comberton?

Will my lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Comberton.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Comberton. Some people will acquire a house in Comberton, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Comberton. The conventional set of information given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the seller to determine whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect reply. The buyer’s lawyers may also commission an enviro search. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.
