There are concerns where any feature can affect the saleability of the house and the presence of contamination can have a major bearing on the disposal of the property enabling the mortgage to be redeemed.
What home owners are increasingly wanting to find out is whether there is an impact from contamination on the value of their property and how much. This is why being able to do Red Book valuations in house is so important to enable the quantification of any diminution in value.
Also it is now becoming clear that conveyancing solicitors didn’t complete all the checks either at the point of mortgage or during a re-mortgaging exercise resulting in some householders finding to their horror that their property’s are hard to sell if they can sell at all. Our growing caseload suggests this is a widespread problem.
