Purchase of leasehold residential home : Sheering Mill Lane, Sawbridgeworth and Parking Space,

In June 2008 our specialist conveyancing Sawbridgeworth team took instruction on the purchase conveyancing for a 125 year leasehold for a residential home valued at around £196, 500. 00 located at Sheering Mill Lane, Sawbridgeworth and Parking Space, CM21. The local authority area of the property is East Hertfordshire District Council - www.eastherts.gov.uk/.

Additional conveyancing questions were rendered within the same day of receiving legal papers. The local authority search revealed that Lawrence Moorings 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 vendors as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep. A road improvement scheme has been identified in this area.

The local authority search revealed that there was a possibility that the Cross Rail Project railway scheme was noted as affecting this area. We needed to satisfy ourselves that this would not adversely affect the structural integrity of the property.

The 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 vendors 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. Alyson Stevenson was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, South East England.

The estate agent's memorandum of sale detailing the vendors licensed conveyancer was obtained shortly before receiving the legal papers.

The estate agent was the Clark Franks (Estate Agents - Sawbridgeworth) branch covering Sawbridgeworth.  

The seller's conveyancing solicitor Sawbridgeworth was Taylor Walton Solicitors - DX 130460 Luton 10. Hertfordshire, South East England, Sawbridgeworth - Conveyancing - leasehold : Sawbridgeworth
