Should our conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Lincolnshire.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Lincolnshire. There are those who purchase a house in Lincolnshire, fully aware 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 get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Lincolnshire. The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has historically flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s lawyers will also commission an environmental search. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be conducted.
