Should my conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Hoole.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Hoole. There are those who buy a house in Hoole, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Hoole. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a compensation claim resulting from an misleading reply. A purchaser’s solicitors will also carry out an enviro search. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.
