My partner and I are selling our house in Perton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem.

Having lived in Perton for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. 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)
