Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Silsworth is more expensive?

We're in Silsworth, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Coventry BS , and our solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
My partner and I are intent on selling our property in Silsworth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Silsworth. We have lived in Silsworth for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must 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 have todaydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Silsworth for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
