I am selling our property in Ludgershall and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Ludgershall lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Ludgershall. We have lived in Ludgershall for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Ludgershall is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Ludgershall are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ludgershall you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ludgershall may ascertain 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 residence.
