Canary Wharf Conveyancing team helps sort out cross rail and unadopted road problem.

125 year Leasehold property - 6 Blackwell Way, London, E14 - Valued at £77, 500.

March 2009: Fridaysmove conveyancing Canary Wharf and Poplar team, East London were instructed on the purchase conveyancing for a 125 year leasehold for a residence valued at around £77, 500. The property is located at 6 Blackwall Way, London, E14.

Fridaysmove expertly prepared conveyancing enquiries which were forwarded within the same day of receiving conveyancing agreement.

The local authority search revealed that Blackwall Way was an unadopted road in this area. This was of concern to the buyer and their mortgage lender. Further investigations need to be made and with the registered owners as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep.

Unadopted or private roads means they do not belong to any Local Authority and they have no duty to maintain them.  However, they may be rights of way - and/or highways for specific classes of vehicle.  

The local authority search revealed that there was a possibility that the Cross Rail Project railway scheme was noted as affecting this area. We needed to satisfy ourselves that this would not adversely affect the structural integrity of the property. The handling conveyancer discovered that there were Planning permissions affecting this residence. The local authority could answer any questions in regards to this query.

The local authority area of the residence is Tower Hamlet Council .

The managing agent is Peveral OM. Mary Spiteri-Panayi was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Canary Wharf and Poplar, Tower Hamlets, East London.
