In March 2008 Fridaysmove residential conveyancing Cornwall team were instructed to act on the purchase conveyancing for a freehold for a property valued at around £415, 000. 00 located at Halvarras Road, Playing Place, Truro, Cornwall, TR3. The local authority area of the property is Carrick Council - www.cornwall.gov.uk.
Additional enquiries were raised within the same day of receiving letter with draft contract papers (including Standard Conditions of Sale, Official Copies, Land Registry Documentation). The handling conveyancer discovered that there were Planning permissions affecting this residence. The Land Registry Office Copies supplied were out of date and accordingly fresh copies were requested from the sellers conveyancing solicitor.
The Land Registry Office Copies supplied revealed that the sellers had owned the property for less than five years and as such there was a danger that the transfer of the property to the seller could be set aside if it was established that the property within that five year period was a Transfer at Undervalue. The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants as set out in a conveyance dated 09/06/1924.
It was important that we check with the sellers conveyancing solicitor that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with. Mary Spiteri-Panayi was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Cornwall, South West England. The estate agent's memo of sale detailing the sellers conveyancing solicitor was obtained shortly before receiving the letter with draft contract papers.
The estate agent was the Miller Countrywide branch covering Cornwall. The seller's conveyancing solicitor Cornwall was Potter, Owtram and Peck - DX 52655 Grayshott. South West England, Cornwall - Conveyancing - freehold : Cornwall
