Solicitor completes on sale of mid-terrace house in Portsmouth

Conveyancing in Portsmouth for a dwelling on Portchester Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO2 was carried out by Fridaysmove -approved Solicitor Labeeba Zia in July 2010.

Upon instruction, Labeeba noted that there was an additional occupier at the property who was then asked to sign the contract as well prior to the exchange with the purchaser’s Conveyancing Solicitor. This process is typically carried out by Solicitors to avoid any claims by the occupier after the transfer of the property is completed.

The home is situated within the local authority district of Portsmouth City Council (Civic Offices, Guildhall Square, Portsmouth, PO1 2AL).

The findings of the local authority search revealed that an order was made on the 17th of May 2002 to extinguish the public footpath at the rear of the property; however, two objections were made by local residents and were not resolved. As this was a community led scheme the council could not confirm the order without the consent of all parties affected and the path is therefore still a public right of way.

The handling Estate Agent was the Taylors branch at 143 Havant Road, Drayton, Portsmouth, PO6.

The purchasers were represented by Christies Conveyancing Services located at 97 Albert Road, Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO5 2SG.

The land registry official copy contained the following covenant in a Conveyance of the land dating back to the 14th of October 1924:

“AND THE Purchasers for themselves and their executors administrators and assigns hereby covenant with the Vendors that no offensive trade or business nor sale of beers wines or  spirituous liquors shall be carried on upon any part of the said land hereby conveyed nor shall any building erected or to be erected thereon be used for the sale of wines spirits or beer. ”

Contracts were finalised and the transaction completed on the 30th of July 2010.
