Completed the sale of my flat in East Sussex last December but my buyer keeps whats apping every few hours to say his solicitor is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Where relevant, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion procedures unique to conveyancing in East Sussex.

My wife and I are planning on selling our home in East Sussex and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in East Sussex. We have lived in East Sussex for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
What does commercial conveyancing in East Sussex cover?

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a East Sussex conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?
If you are instructing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a East Sussex conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non East Sussex conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be useful:
Can they put you in touch with clients in East Sussex who can give a testimonial? If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not?
I own a ground floor flat in East Sussex, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in East Sussex with over 90 years remaining are worth £221,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2090
With 70 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
