Should my solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Leominster.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Leominster. There are those who purchase a property in Leominster, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Leominster. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to discover whether the property has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s solicitors should also carry out an enviro report. This will indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Leominster is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Leominster are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Leominster you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Leominster may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Leominster. I have chance upon a web site which looks to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all this stuff completed via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

My wife and I have selected a Leominster conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (novice purchasers) and have spotted in the Ts and Cs that they are not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. Need I be concerned or is that standard with lawyer?

We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the SRA, who dictate stringent laws covering monies deposited in their bank.
