I am planning on selling our property in Campden Hill and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Campden Hill. We have lived in Campden Hill for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Campden Hill I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Campden Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

As co-executor for the will of my grandfather I am selling a residence in Newport but reside in Campden Hill.

I previously advised by my lender that their panel lawyers operate no sale no fee basis for conveyancing in Campden Hill. My purchase fell through nevertheless the conveyancers want search fees! They say the fees are seperate!
in offering "no completion no fee" Campden Hill conveyancing lawyers are writing off their fees for any work carried out. We must stress this is NOT an insurance scheme. you will still be expected to reimburse any costs that the property lawyer has expended for you for example Campden Hill local authority searches
