Will our lawyer be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Hinton St George.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Hinton St George. Some people will buy a house in Hinton St George, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Hinton St George. The standard information sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the owner to discover if the property has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim stemming from an misleading response. The buyer’s lawyers should also order an enviro report. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be initiated.
