My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in East Beckton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in East Beckton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 property 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. East Beckton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
