The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to discover whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an misleading reply. The buyer’s conveyancers should also commission an environmental search. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be made.
