There are numerous houses in East Ham on private roads. We are purchasing one such house. Are there any advantages to purchasing a property on a privately owned road?
East Ham conveyancing firms are well versed in conveyancing propertieson unadopted roads. The conveyancing practitioner should review the Land Registry data to identify any rights or responsibilities. It is possible that there is a residents association that residents make annual contributions to maintain the road. Where there is one, the road will likely be maintained and appear better than publicly maintained.
