We are downsizing from our property in Waltham Cross and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Waltham Cross. We have lived in Waltham Cross for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to 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)
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Waltham Cross prior to instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders will not grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

I was advised by a couple of local estate agents in Waltham Cross to find a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your site over a competitor’s?
We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
I am an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a bungalow in Waltham Cross which is to be sold. The property is unregistered at HMLR and I'm told that some purchasers will insist that it is done before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?
In the circumstances you refer to it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
