Should our solicitor be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Pensysarn.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Pensysarn. There are those who buy a house in Pensysarn, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Pensysarn. The conventional set of property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A buyer’s lawyers may also conduct an enviro search. This should reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.

How does conveyancing in Pensysarn differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Pensysarn come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Pensysarn typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Pensysarn or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Pensysarn is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Pensysarn are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Pensysarn you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pensysarn may determine 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.
