I am downsizing from our house in South Woodham Ferrers and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street South Woodham Ferrers lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in South Woodham Ferrers. Having lived in South Woodham Ferrers for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. 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 ailment)

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in South Woodham Ferrers I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in South Woodham Ferrers for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
