Conveyancing completes despite old documentation on Peterborough home

Conveyancing Solicitor Shazia Gafoor acted on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. P for the purchase of a home on Strawberry Avenue, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE11 in October 2010.

Details of the property and the price were received from the seller’s agents, the Charles Russell Solicitors branch covering Peterborough. The land registry documentation that was supplied by the seller’s Conveyancing Solicitor was out-of-date and Shazia had to request new copies.

The standard local search was carried out with South Holland District Council, Council Offices, Priory Road, Peterborough, PE11 2XE.  

The following entries were revealed which related to previous planning permissions and miscellaneous charges:

  • 97/00003/OUT, Residential development for 75 dwellings. A. C. 09. 09. 02
  • 04/00300/REM, Residential development for 75 dwellings and associated works. A. C. 23. 08. 04
  • Agreement made 2nd February 2005 between (1) the Council of the City of Peterborough (the Council) (2) Broadgate Homes Limited of the second part and (3) Sir Philip Vyvian Naylor-Leyland Bt of the third part under Section 38 and Section 278 of the Highways Act 1980 relating to Highways Works at Bretton Way, Bretton in the City of Peterborough. Regd. 12. 03. 07
  • Clean Air Act 1956, Smoke Control Order No. 2 Made 6th October 1970. Operative. 01. 07. 72. Regd. 14. 07. 71

The local search also revealed that Strawberry Avenue was an unadopted road and further investigation had to be made to verify ownership of the road and arrangements in regards to upkeep and maintenance.

As there were no additional issues, Shazia was able to proceed to a rapid completion, to the satisfaction of both parties.

The estate agent for the property was Broadgate Homes at Broadgate House, Weston Hills, PE12 6DB.
