Conveyancing in York completes on 20th August after a 'flood' of enquiries.

The Conveyancing for a York purpose built leasehold flat on Lawrence Street, York was 'deftly' completed in August by Gemma Farguson of Fridaysmove .

Exchanging contracts 2 weeks before completion, Gemma used her considerable insight into the York property market to get the case through in under 5 weeks from receipt of the sales papers from the agent.

In addition to the standard searches and enquiries made of the City of York Council, further investigations were made by the buyers Property Solicitors into the possible risk of flooding in the area.

Flooding can be an issue in York due to its' proximity to the River Ouse.

This is a standard precaution when Conveyancing in York even though the flood defence network is more or less effective.

Conveyancers with York experience (and a good memory) will remember that 11 years ago York suffered from the worst flooding for nearly 400 years and hundreds of homes were damaged or flooded.

The flood plain in the city has actually deterred property development in the historical city of York so many consider it a mixed blessing.

Even though the risk is considered low, the buyers' Conveyancing Solicitors would have conducted a flood plain search at the Environment Agency.

Planning papers for the erection of part three/part four storey pitched roof block of 24 flats (A. C. 01. 10. 02. 04/00778/FUL) and the retention of five lighting columns (A. C. 06. 10. 04. 29/06/2010) were located by the seller's Solicitor and sent to the other side.

The property was sold for just under the asking price at £134, 950 and it was sold with full title guarantee.  

York is an historic town and that frequently means complications in the Conveyancing process.   Fridaysmove advise buyers to verify the local knowledge of their proposed solicitor when looking for a cheap Conveyancing Quote in York.
