Should my lawyer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Shoeburyness.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Shoeburyness. There are those who buy a house in Shoeburyness, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises.

The buyer’s lawyers should also carry out an environmental report. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be made.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Shoeburyness I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Shoeburyness for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Shoeburyness. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Shoeburyness - 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.
