When Conveyancing in Shrewsbury recently, Solicitor Catherine Williams acted on behalf of the buyer of a house on Station Lane, Misterley, Shrewsbury SY5. The sellers' Solicitors were able to send her the draft contract with a copy of the land registry's title of the property, within a day of the agents confirming details of the sale.
Requesting local searches and further enquiries
Catherine was then able to request a local search from Shropshire Council at Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY2 6ND and was also able to check that the vendors had a full freehold title to the property they were selling.
The residence was subject to some rights contained in a 1926 conveyance which were not fully set out in the title. Catherine therefore immediately asked the sellers' Solicitors, Terry Jones and Co of Abbey House, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY2 6BH to obtain a copy of the conveyance, and sent them some further property enquiries.
Downloading documents from the land registry
Conveyancers can now download many documents direct from the land registry's website, so the sellers' Solicitors were able to obtain a copy of the 1926 Conveyance and forward this within a couple of days. From this Catherine was able to see that the rights related to the use of a driveway which was shared with the adjoining house. She then prepared a full report on title for the purchasers, and obtain their signatures to the contract and transfer.
Catherine was soon able to complete the purchase, secure in the knowledge that the buyers had acquired good legal title. The agents who negotiated the sale were D B Roberts of 3 Market Street, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY1 1LE Tel: 01743 357032 and were very complimentary about the speed with which Ms Williams handled the purchase.
