Our Fridaysmove conveyancing Purton team, in August 2009, were instructed for the conveyancing for a freehold, for a residence in the Swindon area. The value of the property was around £174, 995. 00 and was in the local authority area of Swindon Council.
Expertly prepared conveyancing enquiries were forwarded within the same day of receiving conveyancing agreement (including Standard Conditions of Sale).
The Land Registry Office copies that were supplied revealed that the registered owners 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 certain restrictions, which was told in a transfer from 19th December 1984. It was important that we checked with the registered owners conveyancing specialist that these restrictions/covenants had been fully complied with.
Jaaine Intharajah was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in the area in South West England.
The estate agent's particulars of sale detailing the registered owners conveyancing specialist was obtained shortly before receiving the conveyancing agreement. The estate agent was Connells Estate Agents.
