Will our lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Willerby.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Willerby. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Willerby, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where 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 during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Willerby. The standard information supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro search. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Willerby I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Willerby for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
