Will our lawyer be asking questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Plympton.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Plympton. There are those who acquire a house in Plympton, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Plympton. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the vendor to discover if the property has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate answer. A buyer’s lawyers should also order an environmental report. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be carried out.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Plympton. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Plympton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a leasehold flat in Plympton, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Plympton with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2096

You have 74 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
