Purchase of leasehold property : London, W5 - Conveyancing in South Ealing - exchanged 03/07/2009

In July 2009 our property conveyancing South Ealing team took instruction on the purchase conveyancing for a 125 year leasehold for a property valued at around £243, 000. 00 located at London, W5.

This home is in the local authority of Ealing Council Borough Of London - www.ealing.gov.uk/. Specific conveyancing enquiries were sent within the same day of receiving sale and purchase agreement (including Copy Deeds). Planning permissions were revealed on the property and investigated by our conveyancing in South Ealing planning department.

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.

The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants as set out in a conveyance dated 05/03/1900.

It was important that we check with the vendors conveyancing solicitor that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with. Catherine Williams was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in South Ealing, Ealing, 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 Northfields branch covering South Ealing. - http://www.northfields.co.uk. The seller's conveyancing solicitor South Ealing was Elliots Bond and Banbury - DX5154 Ealing. Ealing, West London, London.
