We are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Hastings but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Why were they notified?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on the Kent Reliance approved list is required to advise Kent Reliance of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to disclose the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Hastings.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Hastings I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hastings suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Given that I am about to spend over three hundred thousand on a property in Hastings I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning theconveyancing before appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Hastings.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Hastings should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

Is it best to use a Hastings conveyancing practitioner based in the location that I am purchasing? An old friend can deal with the legal formalities however her office is a couple of hundredkilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Hastings conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were impressed that must trump using an unknown Hastings conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

Me and mypartner and I are searching for an affordable conveyancing solicitor in Hastings to purchase a apartment. I am aware of the chance of getting ripped off but with lots of Hastings conveyancing practices out there...who do I opt for?
