Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Eastbourne

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Eastbourne. Almost all the flats are already sold. Is it really necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Eastbourne?

Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Eastbourne conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to swap to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Eastbourne.

Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Eastbourne conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel?

Eastbourne conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from HSBC directly.

What will a local search inform me about the house my wife and I purchasing in Eastbourne?

Eastbourne conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations such as Onsearch The local search is essential in every Eastbourne conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any unpleasant surprises after you move into your new home. The search will provide information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject areas.

I decided to have a survey done on a house in Eastbourne prior to instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Eastbourne. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Eastbourne to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

I have been recommended by numerous selling agents in Eastbourne to get a quote from a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your services over another?

We don’t make any commission for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

Am I best advised to choose a Eastbourne conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal formalities however her office is 300miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Eastbourne conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Eastbourne know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and the majority were happy that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Eastbourne conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
