Should my solicitor be raising questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Liss.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Liss. There are those who purchase a property in Liss, 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 get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Liss. The conventional set of property information forms supplied 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 find out whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading answer. The buyer’s lawyers should also order an enviro report. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.
