Will our solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Ravenglass.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Ravenglass. Some people will acquire a house in Ravenglass, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the buyer or by their lawyers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Ravenglass. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect reply.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Ravenglass basement flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Ravenglass conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Ravenglass do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I own a leasehold flat in Ravenglass, conveyancing having been completed in 1995. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Ravenglass with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2089

With only 68 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
