I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Do I opt for a national conveyancer rather than a family Brighton conveyancing solicitor?
On the whole conveyancing practitioners in your location will have excellent connections with your local authority, which could help with your Brighton conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require. It can only be a plus if they have existing relationships with the Local Land Registry Office your area Brighton, other property lawyers in the neighbourhood and Brighton property agents.
My wife and I are downsizing from our home in Brighton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Brighton conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Brighton. Having lived in Brighton for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Brighton. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Brighton
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Brighton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Brighton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Brighton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brighton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

The conveyancing solicitors conducting our conveyancing in Brighton has sent papers to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not yet recorded at the Land Registry?
It is rare for premises in Brighton to be unregistered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Brighton conveyancing practitioners should be capable of dealing with such matters but in the event that uncertainty exists the prevailing recommendation nowadays is for the current owners to deal with the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the disposal - this will predictably result in a prolonged transaction.
