Solicitor completes on purchase near picturesque bluebell woods in Bristol

Conveyancing in Bristol for a dwelling at The Bluebells, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, BS32 was handled by Solicitor Shazia Gafoor.

The dwelling was sold under an enduring power of attorney acting on behalf of the owner. It was important for Shazia to ensure that all legal documentation was in order so that the land registry formalities could progress without difficulties and delays. The land registry will not accept applications to register dealings, including the transfer of a property, unless the correct legal procedures have been followed.

The standard local authority search for Conveyancing in Bristol was carried out via Bristol City Council, located at the Council House, College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TR. Search results revealed the following planning permissions affecting the residence:

  • TEMP07/1272 - Erection of rear conservatory PD 18. 04. 2007
  • P92/0020/314 - Erection of 120 dwellings and associated works CP 20. 05. 1992

Copies of completion certificates and approvals were requested for the works as evidence of compliance with building regulations and guidelines. The first application did not have a decision issued, as the owners did not require permission for the renovation.

In addition to a list of planning decisions and building regulations affecting the dwelling, the replies from the council also provided information relating to the following concerns which are useful to know when buying a property:

  • whether or not the highways adjoining the property are publicly maintained
  • major road schemes close to the property and minor schemes abutting or affecting the residence
  • drainage to the home
  • contaminated land
