My partner and I are downsizing from our house in South Ruislip and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in South Ruislip. We have lived in South Ruislip for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor 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 sickness)
How does conveyancing in South Ruislip differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in South Ruislip approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in South Ruislip tend to purchase the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 South Ruislip or who has acted in the same development.

I purchased a flat in South Ruislip last 14/6/2018 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my conveyancer told me that it may take twelve months to complete the registration formalities. I have called HMLR directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your property lawyer that you must contact in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration formalities for your South Ruislip property. Normal South Ruislip conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s solicitor that they will help resolve any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
