A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Godmanchester. Having lived in Godmanchester for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything.
