Should my solicitor be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Uckfield.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Uckfield. There are those who purchase a house in Uckfield, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their solicitors which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Uckfield. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has ever been flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could bring a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A buyer’s lawyers will also order an environmental search. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be carried out.
