You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.

I am selling our property in Great Missenden and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Great Missenden. We have lived in Great Missenden for six years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything.

How does conveyancing in Great Missenden differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Great Missenden approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Great Missenden usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Great Missenden or who has acted in the same development.
