In March 2007, Fridaysmove conveyancing Chertsey team handled the purchase conveyancing for a 125 year leasehold, for a dwelling valued at around £179, 500. 00. This property was located at Ottershaw, Chertsey, Surrey. The residence being in the local authority area of Runnymede Council.
Planning permissions were discovered by the handling conveyancing, and therefore this affected the residence.
The Land Registry Office copies that were supplied 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 transfer dated 05/11/1986. It was important that we check with the registered owners conveyancing lawyer that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with.
Gemma Farguson was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in this particular area in Surrey, South East England.
The estate agent's sales memorandum, detailing the registered owners conveyancing lawyer, was obtained shortly before receiving the draft contract documentation. The estate agent was Townends (branch covering Chertsey).
The seller's conveyancing solicitor, in Chertsey, was Davisons Solicitors.
