Mr Tom Green and Ms Annabelle Blue have asked you to represent them in relation to their purchase of Oxford House, Queens Road, West Byfleet.
Client personal history:
Mr Green and Ms Blue are intending to cohabit at the property. Mr Green’s mother is making a contribution to the purchase price, having sold her own property to move in with the couple.
The property is a 3 bedroom semi-detached property at the end of Queens Road and borders onto some woodland. It has a half-acre garden. The house was built on land that previously belonged to the Bexley Bitter Company, which is famous for providing charity housing. The company sold off this parcel of land over 100 years ago to raise some funds. In the garden is a very interesting original carved wooden totem pole, which historians have said is linked to a bronze-age religious group. There are stories about spirits from the group still being seen dancing around the totem pole.
The garden has been landscaped and includes paths made from expensive stone, garden statues and ornaments and a number of rare trees, grown both in pots and in the ground. The theme of the garden is that of an Edwardian country garden.
The purchase price for the property was £575,000. Mr Green’s mother, Mrs Pink has given her son £100,000 towards the purchase money. The balance of £475,000 was raised by savings from Mr Green and Ms Blue.
The legal title contains Mr Green’s name only.
