In January 2009 our property conveyancing Rye team previously acted on the purchase conveyancing for a freehold for a residential dwelling valued at around £230, 000. 00 located at Tram Road, Rye Harbour, East Sussex, TN31. The local authority area of the residence is Rother Council - www.rother.gov.uk/.
Conveyancing inquiries were issued within the same day of receiving purchase agreement with ancillary conveyancing documentation (including Official Copies). The local authority search revealed that Tram Road 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 owners as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep.
The Land Registry Office Copies supplied revealed that the 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 transfer dated 18/10/2006. It was important that we check with the owners property solicitor that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with. Our conveyancing in Rye property lawyer prepared a statutory declaration for the owners. Sayrha Elahi was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Rye, East Sussex, South East England.
The estate agent's sales particulars detailing the owners property solicitor was obtained shortly before receiving the purchase agreement with ancillary conveyancing documentation. The estate agent was the Phillips and Stubbs branch covering Rye. - http://www.phillipsandstubbs.co.uk. The seller's conveyancing solicitor Rye was DMH Stallard - DX 2703 Brighton 1.
