My wife and I are intent on selling our house in Chelmsley Wood and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Chelmsley Wood lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chelmsley Wood. We have lived in Chelmsley Wood for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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 have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Chelmsley Wood I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Chelmsley Wood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Back In 2004, I bought a leasehold house in Chelmsley Wood. Conveyancing and Accord Mortgages Ltd mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing solicitor in Chelmsley Wood who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?
First contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder.

You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Chelmsley Wood Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before buying
The majority of Chelmsley Wood leasehold apartments will incur a service bill for maintenance of the block set by the freeholder. Where you purchase the flat you will have to pay this liability, usually in instalments during the year. This can be anything from a few hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for bigger purpose-built buildings. In all likelihood there will be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a significant figure, say around £50-£100 but you should to enquire it because occasionally it could be prohibitively expensive. In the main the cost for major works are not included within maintenance charges, although a few managing agents in Chelmsley Wood ask tenants to pay into a reserve fund and this is used to offset against larger works. What is the length of the lease?
