Not one, but two unusual restrictions were spotted by Fridays' Local Conveyancer Dawn Thomas during Conveyancing in Bristol, Avon.
Valued at around £158, 500, this Bristol freehold home was found to be located within an Aerodrome Safeguarding Zone. While undertaking Local Conveyancing with her customary expertise, Dawn identified the following:
ASZ15 - Aerodrome Safeguarding Zone - Within the boundary Of the aerodrome safeguarding area there may be restrictions on all buildings, structures, erections and works exceeding 90 metres in height.
ASZ21 - Aerodrome Safeguarding Zone - Within the boundary Of the aerodrome safeguarding area there may be restrictions on all applications involving major tree planning schemes, mineral extraction or quarrying, a refuse tip, a reservoir, a sewage disposal works, a nature reserve or a bird sanctuary and on all applications connected with an aviation use.
Both were registered in August 2009.
The seller's Property Information Form provided by the sellers was more than two months old, which Dawn promptly requested to be refreshed, and within one day of receiving the letter with draft contract papers, additional enquires were also requested.
The estate agent was the Your Move, and their Conveyancing Solicitor was Cunningtons. The local authority for this residence is Bristol City Council.
In addition, the Land Registry Office Copies revealed that the sellers had owned the property for less than five years. In this situation, there is a risk that Ms A's transfer of property could be set aside if it was established that within that five year period the property was a "Transfer at Undervalue"; it may be advisable to acquire an indemnity.
Fully informed, Ms A could proceed with the purchase without any further doubts about her Expert Conveyancing.
