My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Hayle and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hayle. Having lived in Hayle for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)

The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
