We are downsizing from our property in Sileby and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Sileby lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Sileby. We have lived in Sileby for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification 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 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)

Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Sileby?
Sileby conveyancing on leasehold apartments often requires the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions the majority will be willing to do so. They are at liberty to invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it is above £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
