Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Flintshire conveyancing searches.

Will my solicitor be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Flintshire.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Flintshire. Some people will buy a house in Flintshire, fully 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 obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be initiated by the buyer or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Flintshire. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the vendor to find out if the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate response. A buyer’s conveyancers may also order an enviro search. This will higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be made.
