Should my lawyer be raising questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Whimple.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Whimple. There are those who acquire a house in Whimple, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Whimple.

If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser may bring a compensation claim stemming from an misleading reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers will also order an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.
How does conveyancing in Whimple differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Whimple approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Whimple tend to purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Whimple or who has acted in the same development.
