Should my conveyancer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Mancot.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Mancot. Some people will acquire a house in Mancot, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Mancot. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to find out whether the premises has historically flooded. If the property has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect response. A purchaser’s conveyancers will also carry out an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be made.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Mancot. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Bank of Ireland to clarify?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Mancot and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Mancot is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Mancot are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Mancot you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mancot 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.

Is it simple use your search app to locate a conveyancing practitioner in Mancot on the panel for my bank?
