Will my conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Copmanthorpe.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Copmanthorpe. Plenty of people will buy a property in Copmanthorpe, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side 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 buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Copmanthorpe. The conventional set of information given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the owner to determine whether the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. The buyer’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro search. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.

How does conveyancing in Copmanthorpe differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Copmanthorpe come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Copmanthorpe usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Copmanthorpe or who has acted in the same development.
My sister completed her conveyancing in Copmanthorpe in 2008. She has got married, widowed and in recent months got remarried. She now intends to dispose of the Copmanthorpe property. I think she will simply be need to provide a copy of her marriage papers to the conveyancer but she is worried it could delay the conveyancing. Should she instruct a lawyer to update the Land Registry details for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to update the register as long as you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the name change occurred.
The buyer’s lawyer should review the title details and require evidence to prove the change of name for example marriage certificates.
