Historical landfill site contamination in environment search results

I am looking to buy a property in Sunbury, TW16, things were fine until I received environment search results. Search revealed the land used to be historical land fill site in 30's. More precisely, I was a ballast pit. The house was built in 60's. Solicitor are waiting for 'all clear' to receive from local authority via seller solicitor. I love the property very much. Other people in 100 houses, in the area, seems to be living happily there. What are the things I need to consider to make my purchase decision? How it is going to affect if I want to sell this property later?

  • The houses have been there ~50 years so what's the problem? Is it going to affect your decision to buy it? If it matters to you perhaps it will matter to a future buyer, if it does not really affect your decision to buy why would it affect a buyer in the future?
