AssumingI was to acquire a straightforward housein Saltdean for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Saltdean?
Any savings you would gain will be isolated to the Saltdean conveyancing searches. The solicitor is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with the vendors lawyer, SDLT submission, register the title etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a mortgage but it will not be meaningful.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Saltdean is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Saltdean are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Saltdean you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Saltdean may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we use the agent's preferred solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Saltdean
We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Saltdean conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will give their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
