As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Pevensey what’s your top tip you can give me concerning the house moving process in Pevensey
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Pevensey and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, selling agent and even potentially the bank. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Pevensey should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Every so often a potential adversary will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your solicitor is wrong. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I'm buying my first flat in Pevensey benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Pevensey I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pevensey suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
