Should my lawyer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Lanchester.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Lanchester. There are those who purchase a house in Lanchester, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Lanchester. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the vendor to find out if the premises has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages resulting from an misleading answer. The buyer’s lawyers should also commission an environmental search. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be initiated.
I'm buying a new build house in Lanchester with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the lender. 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.
