Our conveyancing North Yorkshire team, in September 2009, handled the purchase conveyancing for a freehold, for a home valued at around £124, 995. 00. This home was located at Scarborough in North Yorkshire and in the local authority area of Scarborough Council.
Extra conveyancing enquiries were served within the same day of receiving sale documentation, this included documentation from the Land Registry.
The Land Registry Office copies that were 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 property lawyer, Jonathan Wood, was in charge of conveyancing in North Yorkshire.
The estate agent's sales particulars detailing the registered proprietors conveyancing solicitor was obtained shortly before receiving the sale documentation. The estate agent was Harris Bell Associates (branch covering North Yorkshire).
