What exploration in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the East London area will a Havering conveyancing solicitor report on?


A key step in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves your conveyancing solicitor applying for conveyancing searches (environmental) that provide you with detail on the Havering flooding. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed dedicated flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) could be proposed by the Havering property solicitor if the results of the initial searches highlight a risk of flooding.


If we plan to purchase in the parish of Edgware, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Havering parish in which you are purchasing, the lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
