I am selling our home in Barkingside and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case.

We have lived in Barkingside for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything.

The primary upside of using a high street Barkingside conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate.

If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Barkingside conveyancing solicitor just because they are Barkingside based.
