I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Milton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Milton. We have lived in Milton for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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)

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Milton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Milton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Milton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Milton may determine 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 premises.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Milton. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Milton - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
