My house in Longridge is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the lawyer have to be required to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.
Should my solicitor be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Longridge.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Longridge. Some people will purchase a property in Longridge, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Longridge. The conventional set of information 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 find out whether the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the seller, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s solicitors should also order an enviro report. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be carried out.
