I am selling our house in Broadstairs and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Broadstairs conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Broadstairs. Having lived in Broadstairs for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should 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 sickness)

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Broadstairs what are the most common lease problems?
Leasehold conveyancing in Broadstairs is not unique. All leases are individual and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Barclays , Bank of Scotland, and Britannia all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.
I bought a studio flat in Broadstairs, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2000. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Broadstairs with an extended lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2081
With just 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £17,100 and £19,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
