The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to discover if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer could bring a claim for damages resulting from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an environmental report. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.
