In May 2007 our conveyancing Essex team were instructed to handle the purchase conveyancing for a 99 year leasehold for a home valued at around £133, 500. 00 located at Harwich Road, Mistley, Manningtree, Essex, CO11. The local authority area of the home is Tendring Council - www.tendringdc.gov.uk/.
The local authority search revealed that Road adopted but property is next to footpath 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 registered proprietors as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep. T
he handling conveyancer discovered that there were Planning permissions affecting this residence. The conveyancing searches revealed that the property was at risk of natural flooding (as shown on area environmental searches). We needed to check with the registered proprietors 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.
