How regeneration project boosts Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent

Home to a mining community in previous decades, Fegg Hayes Village is a suburb comprising about 160 houses in the North of Stoke-on-Trent.

After the mining industry in Britain collapsed, Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent in this area declined. Many houses became abandoned and derelict.

But an extensive regeneration project started in 2008/2009 and is quickly revitalising the area.
Fridaysmove’s approved Conveyancing Solicitor Jaclyn Smith recently helped Richard M with the purchase of a freehold residential property in Oversley Road, Fegg Hayes, Stoke-on-Trent, ST6.

The property, which is valued at £51, 500k, is located in the immediate vicinity of Hayes Village. Richard will be glad to discover the improvements going on in his new neighbourhood, making Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent more attractive.

How a comprehensive regeneration project revitalises Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent

Defunct buildings are being demolished while new family homes are erected. In addition, many houses are being refurbished, new community walls are built and landscaped gardens and communal facilities are installed.

More than £1m has been invested in the area so far. There is also a primary school situated in Fegg Hayes, making the location attractive to families.

When advising Richard on this Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent, Conveyancing Solicitor Jaclyn Smith discovered a worrying discrepancy. The details of the seller stated in the contract deviated from the information Jaclyn obtained from the Land Registry.

It was vital for Jaclyn to ensure that the registered owner and the seller as stated in the contract were the same person. Otherwise, the seller might not actually be the legal owner of the property, making the whole sale illegal. Solicitors have to be on the lookout for such inconsistencies when Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent.

Furthermore, there were restrictions/covenants on the property, dated 10/03/2003. When such obligations are as recent as this one, they are usually unproblematic. This is because the current owner will probably be aware of them.

It is nevertheless indispensable to check that the current owner complied with all restrictions and covenants because if he has not, the buyer may be liable for this. For this purpose, Jaclyn contacted the sellers’ Conveyancing Solicitors in Stoke-on-Trent, BPE First LLP.

Checking the seller’s passport clarified that he was the person referred to in the contract as well as in the Land Registry documents. Jaclyn also found out that all restrictions and covenants had been fully complied with. With all obstacles removed, this Conveyancing in Stoke-on-Trent completed in March 2010.
