  1. COPY ENQUIRIES RAISED

These are the enquiries we have raised with the seller’s conveyancers based on our inspection of the documents supplied to us. We will report any issues arising from the replies we receive. If you have any further enquiries you wish us to raise at this point, please let us know.

  1. PLAN OF THE PROPERTY

There is no plan of the property with the deeds to indicate where the boundaries should be. It is therefore particularly important that you ensure that the boundaries are clearly defined on site and appear to be well established. If they are not, or if they appear to have been moved at any time, please report this to us.

There is a plan of the property in the * dated *. The plan shows the extent of the property edged in red. The plan is for identification purposes only and not intended to show the precise location of each boundary. However, boundaries should be checked on site and any significant discrepancies referred to us so that we can seek clarification from the sellers.

Please let us know if you think that the seller is occupying land which appears from inspection to be outside the red edging on the plan, because you will not own such land following completion. Please also let us know if you think that the red edging on the plan includes land which appears from inspection to be occupied by neighbours, because those neighbours may have acquired rights to it.

We enclose a copy of a plan obtained from the Land Registry website. It is for information only and cannot be relied upon as a conclusive representation of the extent of the property. Nevertheless, it represents land which is currently unregistered (see below) and which we would expect to be registered in your favour after completion, provided it is an accurate representation of the boundaries on site and provided the deeds are in order. If you think there is a discrepancy between the plan and the existing boundaries on site, please let us know.

  1. TITLE DOCUMENTS

This title has not yet been registered at the Land Registry and therefore consists of the old “deeds”, rather than being contained in Land Registry registers. This is not a cause for concern. It arises from the fact that the property has not changed hands for many years and has not therefore been subject to registration requirements. After completion, we will arrange for your title to be registered at the Land Registry.

In the process of registration, the Land Registry will extract any matters from the deeds which affect the property and enter them into a set of registers. These matters will include rights of way, agreements and declarations and covenants.

In this case, there are no such matters affecting the property and no copy deeds are enclosed. Please refer to the report below for further information.

The matters affecting the property are contained in the documents listed below and copies are enclosed. The parts of the documents which we need to draw to your attention are referred to in the report below.

Report on Matters contained in the Deeds

Where we have concerns about any matters contained in the deeds, we will have raised those concerns with the seller’s conveyancers and a copy of our enquiries is enclosed.

The following is a summary of any matters affecting the property as revealed in the deeds.

Services

Please read section 2 of the Supplementary Notes for information about service rights and reservations.

The services rights and reservations are set out in *.

We regard the position as satisfactory.

There is a right to use shared private drains. There are no rights to use other private services (such as water, gas and electricity) that pass under neighbouring land. This is not unusual and is not a cause for concern provided that either the supplies connect direct to the mains without passing under neighbouring land; or the private connections have served the property for twenty years or more without objection, interruption or payment of a fee, so that rights have been acquired by long user.

Unknown covenants

Our inspection of the deeds indicates that a * dated * may contain restrictive covenants that affect the property. However, the seller’s conveyancers have been unable to produce the document and it may be lost. If we do receive it, we will forward a copy to you. However, we expect that the Land Registry may make a note of the unknown covenants in the registers of title. Please read section 5.3 of the Supplementary Notes for information about the implications of this.
