We are intent on selling our house in Huntingdon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Huntingdon 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 Huntingdon. Having lived in Huntingdon for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 illness)

Huntingdon conveyancing on leasehold flats usually necessitates the buyer’s lawyer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries most will be willing to assist. They are entitled to levy a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is above £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the charge is technically not due. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to complete the sale of your home.
