My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Cowley and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Cowley. We have lived in Cowley for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Cowley completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Cowley prior to retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks may not issue a mortgage on such a property.
