BEWARE - Properties sold with title, lease defects and outstanding planning conditions.


I was purchasing a property from Michael Guthrie Developments and Gaynor Jones was the sellers solicitor.. This development consisted of 6 properties and she previously sold 5 of the properties before my offer was accepted.. These other properties had been occupied for some time (up to 16 months before I viewed..) I was requested to pay £5000 to reserve the final apartment @ St Aidans house Berwick and my solicitor was instructed to pursue purchase. It immediately became evident that despite the other 5 properties been sold prior there were defects with the title deeds, lease and there were 3 outstanding planning conditions preventing occupation.. I waited over 6 month's for this firm to resolve the outstanding issues so I could complete the purchase and then days prior to exchange, I was informed the property was going back on the open market because it was considered to be worth more now despite the open reservation agreement in place and the £5000 I had paid.
