Contaminated land

Buying and selling

Since July 2001, any solicitor helping you to buy or sell your home should include contaminated land issues within their searches. If searches reveal potential contamination or a potentially problematic historic use of an area, they usually make further enquiries with us.

If you think contaminated land may be a problem at your property and you bought it after 2001, please contact your solicitor as they should have alerted you to this.

As well as an environmental report, a Local Land Charges search may be carried out, to tell you if the property or area is on our register.
