I am selling our home in Gorton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Gorton lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Gorton. Having lived in Gorton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with 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 illness)
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Gorton
It is improbable the owners are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this.

Last May I purchased a leasehold house in Gorton. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
