Should my solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Cottingham.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Cottingham. There are those who purchase a property in Cottingham, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Cottingham. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the seller to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an misleading response. The buyer’s conveyancers will also carry out an enviro search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be carried out.
