My partner’s dad is a property lawyer. I anticipate that I'll be able to get mate’s pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what level of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Uckfield?
It’s wise to seek multiple conveyancing estimates. Do use our comparison tool on this page. You will notice that prices may vary but service levels do differ between property lawyers as is the case with most professions.
The deeds to my home are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Uckfield 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
You no longer need to have the physical deeds to establish that you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
How does conveyancing in Uckfield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Uckfield come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Uckfield usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Uckfield or who has acted in the same development.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the estate agent advised that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Uckfield
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your preferred Uckfield conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Uckfield. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Uckfield - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
