We are planning to move property in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Eastbourne. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the estate agent however this should only be done once the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you should inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Eastbourne or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Eastbourne.

Can I be sure that the Eastbourne conveyancing solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Eastbourne seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.

We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Clydesdale as we want to carry out alterations to our home in Eastbourne. Are we obliged to select a local Eastbourne solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Clydesdale would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale panel.

Me and my brother own a semi-detached Edwardian house in Eastbourne. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Eastbourne and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

How does conveyancing in Eastbourne differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Eastbourne come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Eastbourne typically 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Eastbourne or who has acted in the same development.
