It does beg the question why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Emerson Park. We have lived in Emerson Park for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Are there any distinct advantages to selecting a local property lawyer in Emerson Park
Many buyers and sellers in Emerson Park opt for a nearby high street solicitor so that they can pop into the firm’s offices in the event that they have questions, and to deliver paperwork rather than run the risk of relying on the Royal Mail.
There is a slight edge in opting for a property lawyer local to the premises you are purchasing, due to the familiarity of the region and potential local issues - however this is debatable. Most conveyancers carry out their communications via the web and could be based anywhere.
