It was in September 2009, that our residential conveyancing in Yorkshire team were instructed to handle the purchase conveyancing for a freehold, for a residential conveyancing located at Huntington, Yorkshire. The value of this property was around £227, 000. 00. York City Council was where this property was in the local authority of.
Comprehensive conveyancing enquiries were emailed within the very same day of receiving contract papers.
There was a concerning discrepancy between details of the vendors contract papers against the official copies. This was obviously important to clarify, as our conveyancing lawyer needed to be sure that the registered owner and the seller on the contract were the same.
The Land Registry documentation revealed that the property was subject to restrictions/rights/covenants, as set out in a conveyance dated 20th June 1961. It was important that we checked with the vendors property lawyer that these restrictions had been fully complied with.
Catherine Williams was the property lawyer in charge of conveyancing in Haxby.
The estate agent's memorandum of sale, detailing the vendors property lawyer, was obtained shortly before receiving the contract papers. William H Brown was the estate agent.
