In November 2008 Fridaysmove residential conveyancing Bordon team acted on the purchase conveyancing for a freehold for a property valued at around £137, 500. 00 located at Headley Down, Hampshire, GU35. This home is in the local authority of East Hampshire Council.
Additional enquiries were raised within the same day of receiving letter with draft contract papers (including Standard Conditions of Sale, Official Copies, Land Registry Documentation).
The local authority search revealed that Hillside Close was an unadopted road in this area. This was of concern to the buyer and their mortgage lender. Further investigations need to be made and with the sellers as to ownership of the road and practical arrangements in terms of maintenance and upkeep. The handling conveyancer discovered that there were Planning permissions affecting this residence. The Land Registry Office Copies supplied revealed that the sellers 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 09/11/1984. It was important that we check with the sellers conveyancing solicitor that the aforementioned restrictions/covenants etc. had been fully complied with. Sayrha Elahi was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Bordon, Hampshire, South East England. The estate agent's memo of sale detailing the sellers conveyancing solicitor was obtained shortly before receiving the letter with draft contract papers. The estate agent was the Haart branch covering Bordon. – http://www.haart.co.uk" target="_blank">
