On 18th May 2007, the Phew conveyancing team was asked by a client to assist in the purchase of a property located at Gloucester Terrace, Paddington, London. The property was bought by the client for £ 377000. The London Borough of Westminster was the local authority related to this conveyancing deal.
The Phew conveyancing team examined the office copy entries & it was found that the property was leasehold. The property held an absolute title which eliminated fears of ownership as it was guaranteed by the registry. The team also ensured that the property was solely occupied by the seller and his family members before the sale was carried out.
There were some additional rights passing with the property, additional rights over the property and also some additional restrictive covenants against the property which have been clearly mentioned in the lease. The client was required to adhere and abide by these covenants during ownership of the property.
The conveyancing team found that the property stood in an area which came under the purview of Smoke Control Order and Clean air Act. According to the Smoke Control Order, excess smoke from chimney was not allowed and the Clean Air Act prohibited smoke of any kind from other premises, as well.
Gloucester Terrace is adopted & maintained by the London Borough of Westminster. Our conveyancing team’s inspection did not reveal any future plans regarding the arrival of new roads or maintenance of the existing roads.
The conveyancing solicitor who appeared for the seller was Shuba Mehta and the estate agent was KFH Estate Agents.
