Will my conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Woodcote Green.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Woodcote Green. There are those who acquire a property in Woodcote Green, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Woodcote Green. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the vendor to find out whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. The buyer’s lawyers will also commission an environmental search. This should indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be carried out.

Have purchased a a terraced house in Woodcote Green , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Woodcote Green conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are concluded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Woodcote Green registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises thus registration formalities is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Woodcote Green differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Woodcote Green contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Woodcote Green 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 conveyancers 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 Woodcote Green or who has acted in the same development.
