Conveyancing in Sutton – local rail station raises concerns by purchasers

Conveyancing in Sutton for the purchase of a freehold abode on Stayton Road, Sutton, SM1 was dealt with by Solicitor Gemma Farguson.

A local authority search for Conveyancing in Sutton was carried out via Sutton Council at the Civic Offices, St Nicholas Way, Sutton, SM1 1EA. Search results revealed a series of planning entries relating to the property, however, additional documents were not requested as the works were more than 20 years old.

The purchasers were quite concerned as the dwelling is situated in close proximity to the local rail station servicing Sutton. Gemma assisted her clients by investigating their concerns and liaising with the local authority for more information.

Reference was made to the property’s title, as described in the office copies supplied by the land registry, for rights and restrictions affecting the property. Homes located in the vicinity of rail stations usually carry additional restrictions on the title which require approval before any works are commenced. Building works near a railway may have unforeseen safety implications e.g. when working in the vicinity of high voltage overhead electricity cables and Gemma ensured that her clients were well informed on this matter.

The buyers, Mr. and Mrs. G, were relieved to have all their concerns addressed by Gemma and agreed to proceed with the transaction.

Taylor Willcocks Solicitors handled the Conveyancing in Sutton on behalf of the vendors and were cooperative in providing detailed responses to the additional enquiries that were raised by Gemma on behalf of her clients.

The sales documentation from the estate agent, the Mann Countrywide branch at 40 High Street, Sutton, SM1 1HF, was obtained shortly before the final exchange of Conveyancing contracts.
