In July 2009 our conveyancing East and West Horsley team were handling the purchase conveyancing for a freehold for a home valued at around £625, 000. 00 located at Surrey Gardens, Effingham Junction, Surrey, KT24. The local authority for this property is Guildford Council - www.guildford.gov.uk/. Additional conveyancing enquiries were served within the same day of receiving sale documentation (including documentation from the Land Registry). The local authority search revealed that Surrey Gardens was an unadopted road in this area. This was of concern to the buyer and their mortgage lender.
Further investigations need to be made and with the registered proprietors as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep. The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants as set out in a conveyance dated 11/03/1946. It was important that we check with the registered proprietors conveyancing solicitor that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with.
