We are planning on selling our house in Hedge End and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Hedge End lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hedge End. Having lived in Hedge End for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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 sickness)
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Hedge End 10 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
As long as the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hedge End prior to retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold premises.

I have recently had an offer accepted on a leasehold flat in Hedge End and the mortgage adviser that we are dealing with recommended his solicitor. He quoted £900 plus VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound reasonable?
