Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Eastbourne will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Eastbourne.

I have a terraced Georgian property in Eastbourne. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and The Mortgage Works. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor 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 sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

Taking into account that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Eastbourne I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer concerning thehouse move prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the solicitor due to be conducting your conveyancing in Eastbourne.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Eastbourne should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

A couple of weeks ago I was told by my mortgage company that their panel solicitors operate no completion no fee basis for conveyancing in Eastbourne. I had a purchase abort yet the lawyers have requested search fees! They say the fees are seperate!

Eastbourne conveyancing search costs are disbursements not solicitors costs as these are payable to independent parties.
