Will my conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Perry Barr.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Perry Barr. Plenty of people will buy a house in Perry Barr, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Perry Barr. The conventional set of property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading response. A buyer’s solicitors should also commission an environmental search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be carried out.

How does conveyancing in Perry Barr differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Perry Barr come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Perry Barr usually 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Perry Barr or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Perry Barr I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thetransaction ahead of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?
