I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Edmonton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Edmonton. We have lived in Edmonton for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
four months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Edmonton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 residence 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.

I am the proprietor of a second floor flat in Edmonton. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the amount due.
