Fridaysmove -approved Conveyancing Solicitor Dawn Thomas recently completed on the purchase transaction for a home on Great Moor Street in Stockport, SK2 on behalf of Ms. L.
A search of the local land charges register, which lists all the registered charges against a dwelling, revealed a housing grant as being a charge over the property; Dawn ensured that this charge was removed so that her client did not inherit the debt.
The home is subject to a compulsory purchase order dated 10/10/2005 by the local authority, Stockport Council (Town Hall, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3XE), and enables the council to purchase the property at some time in the future for a specific purpose. Such orders are normally in place in areas that are undergoing widespread regeneration or perhaps where they are widening a road or doing some other major works. Dawn requested further information from the strategic housing department at the council to ensure that the order would not affect her client’s long-term plans for the property.
Handling matters on behalf of the vendors was Cunnington Property Services at 12 East Park Road, SK11 7FH. The estate agent was the Reeds Rains branch at 159 London Road, Hazel Grove, Stockport, SK7 4HH.
Dawn also discovered that there were several planning permissions affecting the residence and proactively obtained completion certificates and documents for each from the council to ensure that the works met the permitted restrictions and guidelines.
The transaction completed without any significant delays and the sales memo from Reeds Rains with details from the vendor’s Conveyancing Solicitor was obtained shortly before the final exchange of contracts.
