A surprise for Conveyancing in Milton Keynes – local house in a conservation area.

Milton Keynes conjures up images of modern housing estates surrounded by many, many roundabouts. So it would seem improbable that a home in the locality would be in a conservation area!

As Property Lawyers dealing with Conveyancing in Milton Keynes are aware, the area administered by the local council extends well beyond the area of the new town.

In April, Property Lawyer Mary Spiteri-Panayi was instructed by Mr and Mrs R to handle the purchase of a freehold home on Lovat Street, Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes, MK16. This property was located in the district covered by Milton Keynes Council. Mary sent her local search, an essential part of Conveyancing in Milton Keynes, to the Civic Offices at 1 Saxon Gate East, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 3EJ, and the replies were received in a few days.

One of the replies showed that the house was located within the conservation area covering the centre of Newport Pagnell. That meant that it was subject to additional planning restrictions, so Mary had to find out whether the sellers had carried out any external works which might have required consent.

Had the sellers made any alterations?

Enquiries were raised with  Shoosmiths of Witan Gate House, 500-600 Witan Gate West, Milton Keynes MK9 1SH, who were handling the Conveyancing in Milton Keynes for the sellers, They were able to confirm that the no alterations had been made to the original building. Mary advised her clients about the planning restrictions in case they were intending to alter or extend the building in the future.

Local agents Brown and Merry of 74A High Street, Milton Keynes, MK16 8AQ were the sellers' agents, and on completion they expressed thanks to Mary for the efficient way she had kept them informed about the progress of this Conveyancing in Milton Keynes.
