My partner and I are selling our house in Mortimer and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Mortimer. We have lived in Mortimer for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? 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 sickness)
