Purchase of freehold residence: Conveyancing Epping, Essex, CM16

Our Fridaysmove conveyancing Epping team acted on the purchase conveyancing, in September 2008, for a freehold on a residence that was valued at around £260, 000. 00.  It was located at Epping, in Essex and therefore Epping Forest was the local authority on this home.

Expertly prepared conveyancing enquiries were forwarded within the same day of receiving conveyancing agreement (including Standard Conditions of Sale).

The Land Registry Office copies that were supplied, were out of date and so new ones were requested from the registered owners conveyancing solicitor. These documents revealed that the registered owners 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 21st June 1976.  It was important that we checked with the registered owners conveyancing specialist, that these restrictions had been fully complied with.

The Seller's Property Information Form, as supplied by the registered owners, was more than two months old and therefore we needed to have this refreshed.

The property lawyer, Dawn Thomas, was in charge of conveyancing in Epping.

The estate agent's particulars of sale, detailing the registered owners conveyancing specialist, was obtained shortly before receiving the conveyancing agreement.  The estate agent was Bairstow Eves (branch covering Epping).

The seller's conveyancing solicitor was Bawtree and Sons Solicitors.
