Will my lawyer be raising questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Shropshire.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Shropshire. There are those who acquire a house in Shropshire, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Shropshire. The conventional set of information given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard question of the seller to determine whether the premises has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a compensation claim resulting from an misleading answer. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an environmental report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be initiated.

My cousin has suggested that I appoint his conveyancers in Shropshire. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Shropshire conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to select a conveyancing lawyer is to get feedback from friends or family who have previously instructed the solicitor that you are considering.

My mother and father are unable to locate their Shropshire property on the HM Land Registry website. They have a vague recollection 50 years ago when they bought the bungalow there were complications regarding the address not being recognised in some systems.

Almost all properties in Shropshire should show up. Have you tried a search to simply the postcode. Ordinarily it will mention all the residences within that postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. Where they bought 50 years ago it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The property might still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which could be with your parent’s mortgage company.
