My wife and I are selling our home in St Albans and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street St Albans lawyer would know that there is no such problem.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in St Albans I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in St Albans in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
