Should my lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Lydney.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Lydney. Plenty of people will buy a house in Lydney, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Lydney. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the owner to find out whether the property has historically flooded. If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be carried out.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Lydney is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Lydney are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lydney you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lydney may decide 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 property.
