Will our conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Tickton.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Tickton. Plenty of people will buy a property in Tickton, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Tickton. The standard information given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the vendor to find out if the property has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a compensation claim resulting from an misleading response. A buyer’s solicitors will also carry out an enviro report. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be initiated.
How does conveyancing in Tickton differ for new build properties?

This is because developers in Tickton usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended.
