We are downsizing from our property in Wisbech and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wisbech. Having lived in Wisbech for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm 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 ailment)

Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Wisbech I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wisbech suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
