We are intent on selling our home in Barnstaple and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Barnstaple. We have lived in Barnstaple for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you 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 illness)

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Barnstaple I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Barnstaple suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Given that I will soon part with £400,000 on a terraced house in Barnstaple I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thetransaction in advance of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Barnstaple should be the figure that you end up paying.
