We went with a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Pevensey Bay recently. Reviewing the terms of engagement I notewe are on the hook for fees even if the dealfalls through. Should I go with them or choose a web based solicitor practice advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Pevensey Bay?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to cover those transactions that do not proceed. You should be mindful that these offerings generally do not protect you from expenditure for instance Pevensey Bay conveyancing search expenses.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Pevensey Bay. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Pevensey Bay. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Co-operative are being difficult. The Pevensey Bay solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Have completed on a a terraced house in Pevensey Bay , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Pevensey Bay conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Pevensey Bay is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected after the buyer is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of maisonettes in Pevensey Bay both have in the region of 50 years unexpired on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Pevensey Bay. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
