Bickley conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Lloyds directly.
I am selling our home in Bickley and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Bickley conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Bickley. We have lived in Bickley for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
