Will my lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Hanworth.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Hanworth. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Hanworth, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Hanworth. The conventional set of information given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect answer. The buyer’s lawyers will also order an enviro search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be carried out.
I am purchasing my first flat in Hanworth with a loan from Lloyds TSB Bank. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My mother and father are having difficulties in finding their Hanworth property on the HMLR online search facility. They have a vague memory fifty years ago when they purchased the bungalow there were complications with the address not being identified on some systems.
Almost all residences in Hanworth should show up. Have you limited your search to just the postcode. Usually it should disclose all the properties within the postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title deeds which could be with your parent’s lender.
