I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my rented property in Walworth by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?
Generally one should not serve notice for your letting unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your lawyer and request that they cajole the other lawyers, try to a target completion date that everyone will look to achieve
We are downsizing from our home in Walworth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Walworth conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Walworth. We have lived in Walworth for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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 ailment)
