I am planning on selling our property in Coxhoe 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. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Coxhoe. We have lived in Coxhoe for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to 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 ailment)
