Conveyancing matters in the UK take 90 days on average. We concluded this transaction 48 days of receiving the conveyancing documentation from the registered proprietors property conveyancer. The Land Registry Office Copies supplied revealed that the registered proprietors had owned the property for less than five years and as such there was a danger that the transfer of the property to the seller could be set aside if it was established that the property within that five year period was a Transfer at Undervalue.
The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants as set out in a conveyance dated 04/07/1963. It was important that we check with the registered proprietors property conveyancer that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with. Mary Spiteri-Panayi was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Henlow and Stondon, Bedfordshire, South East England.
The estate agent's particulars of sale detailing the registered proprietors property conveyancer was obtained shortly before receiving the conveyancing documentation.
