Should our lawyer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Wisbech.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Wisbech. Some people will buy a property in Wisbech, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Wisbech. The standard information given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the seller to find out whether the property has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading response. The buyer’s conveyancers may also carry out an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be initiated.

How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Wisbech come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Wisbech usually buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent has warned us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Wisbech

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Wisbech conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
