I've just had an offer accepted on a flat in Blue Lion Place, just off Long Lane
, however the local environmental search carried out by my solicitor has revealed that the land might be "contaminated" due to the fact that in it's previous life this building was a leatherworks. Chemicals were obviously used during the leather making process and it's thought that these could have leaked into the ground rendering it contaminated.
I'm wondering if anyone who's currently living in Blue Lion Place or who knows about this property has any further information regarding this and could provide some insight as to whether there is a problem or not?
