In November 2008 our property conveyancing Surbiton team were instructed on the purchase conveyancing for a 999 year leasehold for a property valued at around £252, 000. 00 located at Grove Road, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6. This home is in the local authority area of Kingston Upon Thames Council - www.kingston.gov.uk/.
We managed to complete the transaction within 48 days of receiving the sale and purchase agreement from the vendors conveyancing solicitor. Specific conveyancing enquiries were sent within the same day of receiving sale and purchase agreement (including Copy Deeds). As this property is in a conservation area, conveyancers need take extra precautions in case any alteration have been made.
The Land Registry Office Copies supplied revealed that the vendors 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. Our conveyancing Surbiton team obtained the landlords consent to assign the lease. Alyson Stevenson was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames, South West London, London.
The estate agent's memo of sale detailing the vendors conveyancing solicitor was obtained shortly before receiving the sale and purchase agreement. The estate agent was the Townends Estate Agents branch covering Surbiton. We managed to complete the transaction within 48 days of receiving the sale and purchase agreement from the vendors conveyancing solicitor. The seller's conveyancing solicitor Surbiton was FWD Law Associates - DX 152600 Newport. Kingston upon Thames, South West London, London, Surbiton - Conveyancing - leasehold : Surbiton
