I am planning on selling our home in Walthamstow and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Walthamstow lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Walthamstow. We have lived in Walthamstow for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer 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)
