In November 2007 our residential conveyancing Ponders End team were handling the purchase conveyancing for a freehold for a residential conveyancing valued at around £230, 000. 00 located at Enfield, Middlesex, EN3.
This freehold property is in the local authority of Enfield Council Borough Of London - www.enfield.gov.uk/.
A risk of natural subsidence was uncovered - further details can be viewed in the environmental searches. The conveyancing searches also revealed that the property was at risk of natural flooding (as shown on area environmental searches). We needed to check with the vendors whether or not the property had ever suffered from flooding as well as make sure that the insurance would be available to cover the risk of flooding.
The Land Registry Office Copies supplied were out of date and accordingly fresh copies were requested from the vendors conveyancing solicitor. The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants as set out in a conveyance dated 18th December 1936. It was important that we check with the vendors property lawyer that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with.
