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. A high street East Beckton conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in East Beckton. We have lived in East Beckton for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

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?

Even where you use a solicitor outside East Beckton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Beckton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the disposal of our £125,000 maisonette in East Beckton in six days.

    Addressing pre-contract questions Where consent is required before sale in East Beckton Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for East Beckton leasehold property is £350.
