Should our solicitor be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Stokenchurch.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Stokenchurch. Plenty of people will buy a property in Stokenchurch, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Stokenchurch. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate answer. A purchaser’s solicitors will also order an environmental search. This will reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be initiated.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Stokenchurch is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Stokenchurch are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Stokenchurch you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stokenchurch may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
