Conveyancing in Richmond Solicitor completes on purchase of 107 year leasehold

Fridaysmove -approved Solicitor Laura Gill handled the purchase Conveyancing in Richmond for a 107 year leasehold flat on Strawberry Hill Road, TW1 in November 2009 on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. B.

Leasehold transactions are more complex than freehold transactions and it is therefore very important to understand the extent of ownership, including:  1) what the flat owner (Lessee) is solely responsible to maintain, and 2) what is the responsibility of the Lessor in the deal. Your Conveyancing Solicitor will ensure that you are fully aware of all the details.

The seller’s Conveyancing Solicitor was Keppe and Partners at 33 Amyand Park Road, Richmond, TW1 3JF.

There were several planning permissions revealed in the search results with the local authority, Richmond-upon-Thames Council, which Laura had to thoroughly investigate to ensure that renovations carried out by the previous owners were in compliance with planning restrictions and guidelines. The council office is located at Civic Centre, 44 York Street, Richmond, Greater London, TW1 3BZ.

The freehold title of the land revealed a Conveyance dating back to the 18th of January 1884 containing a series of restrictive covenants. Laura examined both the leasehold and freehold title copies as a leasehold title is always subject to the rights and control of the legal owners of the freehold title.

The handling estate agent for the flat, which was valued at £520, 000, was the Dexters branch at 84 Heath Road, Richmond, TW1 4BW.

The transaction led to rapid completion on the 24th of Nobember 2009.
