Are all East Sussex Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel?
Some major lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Co-operative. Is it usual for Co-operative to only issue the offer once my solicitor in East Sussex is approved on their conveyancing panel? Co-operative have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

My offer on a property in East Sussex has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in East Sussex. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Aldermore going?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, East Sussex conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your lawyer is on the Aldermore approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to move forward with searches.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. East Sussex is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in East Sussex are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in East Sussex you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Sussex 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.

My lawyer (approximately 250 miles from merequires that I execute a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising.
