I am selling our house in Four Oaks and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Four Oaks lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Four Oaks.
