Will my solicitor be raising enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Pencader.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Pencader. There are those who buy a house in Pencader, fully 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 get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out 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 can be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Pencader. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to discover if the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro search. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be carried out.
