We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Long Sutton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Long Sutton lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Long Sutton. We have lived in Long Sutton for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should 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)
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Long Sutton is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Long Sutton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Long Sutton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Long Sutton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I am 17 days into a freehold purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Long Sutton. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new lawyers?
They would have to be very bad to suggest replacing them. Has the mortgage been generated? If so you will need to make them aware of the new conveyancer and have the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental charges and complications. That should be your first question of the new lawyers.

Why is it not possible to complete our conveyancing in Long Sutton on Easter Monday?
Because on completion the funds will be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and seller's lawyer and at present this can only happen on a business day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
