Housing association-owned houses often have restrictions registered against the title, preventing any transfer of the property except with the consent of the housing corporation. The Conveyancing of this London home was an exception however.
When Laura Gill handled the conveyancing in Nottingham for a house in Huntley Close, Clifton, Nottingham NG8, she found that the mines and minerals had previously been excluded from the property and there was mention of an old mining lease.
As much as we try to push transactions through in the minimal amount of time, conveyancing can only ever move at the pace of the slowest cog in the machine. This Conveyance in Southport was lucky as we had acted on the flat next door.
Oldham Conveyancing "planning consents" that is! Fridaysmove's Oldham Conveyancing team was instructed in April to act in the sale of a freehold detached house in Royton OL2, a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, Greater Manchester, and formerly part of Lancashire. Peapod Estate's Oldham office had found a buyer for the property, and passed the […]
A recent Homebuyer Report carried out on a home in Croydon revealed a classic example of a problematic flat roof.
One of the areas a surveyor will focus on during a Home Buyers Survey in Leicester is the state of the drains. In this case water had escaped meaning £1000's of likely repairs.
The state of the roof is a concern as the cost of remedy is high. Often, buyers are unaware of problems that await as the roof is hard to view, innaccesible and may be 'patched up'. A recent Property Survey in Liverpool is a cautionary tale:
Following a HomeBuyer Report in Leeds on Asquith Avenue, the surveyor recommended a complete re-roofing of the Home which, assuming the majority of slate tiles could be re-used, would still likely cost in excess of £10,000!
Our client, Mr F, was contemplating buying a semi-detached bungalow so he ordered a Home Buyers Survey in Leigh-on-Sea. Thanks to the Surveyor’s sharp eye, Mr F would be perfectly within his rights to re-negotiate the price of the Leigh-on-Sea property
A buyer in Lancashire has received a generally positive report from a Property Survey in Leyland – although a foul smell in the bathroom may have turned them off.
Our client Mr S was made aware of work that needed to be carried out on a late-Victorian home. The Property Survey in London reported issues with the fasciae and soffits and on-going repairs to stop damp penetrating the main walls of the house.
A Home Buyers Survey in Somerset has found that a collapsed drain beneath a bungalow in the village of Phillip St Norton had already caused significant damage. But the greatest concern was that the movement was ongoing.
The value this Home Buyers Survey in Preston placed on the two-bedroom home was significantly over the market average for houses in Lancashire’s administrative centre. We investigate how the Surveyor arrived at his valuation.
One of our clients asked us to organise a Home Buyers Survey in Lincolnshire on a two-bedroom bungalow. The report that came back was outstanding, with the exception of a stern flood warning.
Mr W is informed by a Home Buyers Survey in Shropshire that this house in historic Wem, home of the sweet pea, is in excellent condition.
This Property Survey in Peterborough found that the outside and living areas of the property was in excellent shape. The Surveyor would have thought he was going to have a very easy day at the office, until he lifted himself into the roof space.
Mr N, was concerned that, although the 1990s property appeared to be in excellent condition, it may contain some hidden flaws. The gravest damage reported by the Property Survey in London was a loose step leading to the front door.
A Home Buyers Survey in Swindon has found that the 1950s, two-bedroom house was drastically overvalued. This was due, in some part, to the presence of asbestos throughout the home.
Our client, Mr L, asked Fridaysmove to commission a Home Buyers Survey in Gosport to investigate an Edwardian property. When the local Surveyor, Mr E, returned his assessment, Mr L may have needed to upgrade his tool shed.
Due to the property’s age, our client wisely opted for a Home Buyers Survey in Warwickshire. They wanted to ensure that it was not nearing the end of its economic life. Unfortunately, that is exactly what the Chartered Surveyor found.
