Should our solicitor be raising enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Murton.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Murton. There are those who purchase a property in Murton, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Murton. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to determine if the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading response. A purchaser’s lawyers should also commission an enviro search. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be conducted.
