Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Victoria Dock. Some people will acquire a house in Victoria Dock, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Victoria Dock. The standard information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to discover whether the property has historically flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading response. A purchaser’s lawyers should also commission an enviro report. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be initiated.
