Land Searches

Brought a property on contaminated land, solicitor didnt advise of resale risks. What are my rights?

Should i have carried out land searches or is it something my solicitor shouldve done. I am quite worried because i’ve found out details since i moved in that the land is dangerous!
Can i be compensated for buying when my solicitor hadnt warned me of health risks or resale problems?
Can you get a refund on your mortgage?
we new we were next to contaminated land when we bought just not advised of the implications.

You will have to take him to court. There is supposed to be full disclosure when a solicitor knowingly sells a damaged good to you. It should be an easy case if he knew about the problem beforehand.
