I am selling our house in Bradford On Avon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bradford On Avon. We have lived in Bradford On Avon for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should 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)
Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold house in Bradford On Avon. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Bradford On Avon who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

My wife and I hope to buy our first home in Bradford On Avon. Conveyancing lawyer already appointed. The mortgage adviser advised that a survey is not necessary as the house was only constructed 16 yrs ago.
You would be well advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence is over 10 years old the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. They will highlight any apparent issues and suggest further investigation if relevant. If there are any signs of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
