We are selling our home in Longford and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Longford. Having lived in Longford for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)

I have recently realised that I have Seventy years unexpired on my flat in Longford. I am keen to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the freeholder. For most situations an enquiry agent should be useful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Longford.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Longford flat is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term was 69 years.
I am buying a ground floor maisonette in Longford. Conveyancing lawyer has been waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance schedule. This afternoon I was advised that the seller needs to forward the insurance schedule for the flat above in addition. Why does my conveyancing practitioner need to check the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly required? We have been in hold for the last month…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Longford to discover Conveyancing in Longford in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the complete premises - which is definitely preferable. Do clarify with your solicitor but it would appear that your solicitor is seeking to verify that the entire building is insured. Insuring your residence is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt due to lack of insurance cover.
