My wife and I are selling our home in Gorton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Gorton lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Gorton. Having lived in Gorton for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Gorton is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Gorton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gorton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Gorton may decide 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.

We are a fortnight into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Gorton. I am am extremely frustrated with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

They would have to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage been issued? In the event that it has you will need to advise them of the new contact details and have the loan are re-issued. The solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid added costs and delays. So that should be your starting point.

Home movers in Gorton prefer a local conveyancer so that they can visit if they have concerns, and to sign mortgage deeds rather taking the chance of relying on the post.

There is a distinct advantage in opting for a conveyancing practitioner local to a property you are buying, due to the in-depth knowledge of the area and potential local concerns - but this is debatable. Most conveyancers conduct their work online and may be practically anywhere.
