Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions that our Brighton branch gets asked: if you need an answer to a question that is not on this list, please contact us for an answer.

> What is the difference between a conveyancing solicitor and a conveyancer?

When you use a solicitor for conveyancing you can be sure that they are regulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA), a member of the Law Society, have degree-level qualifications and at least two years on the job training before qualifying as a conveyancing solicitor.

Whereas a conveyancer tends to be regulated by the Council for Licenced Conveyancers (CLC) and is usually less highly qualified, although can still be perfectly competent.

> When I ask for a quote, do I have to pay anything?

> What’s living in Brighton like?

Tom Dyckhoff wrote about Brighton in his Let’s Move To … column in The Guardian in June 2019:

What’s going for it? 
Aside from the fact that it is on a coastline at the end of the country, threatened by sea level rise and postglacial rebound, Brighton is possibly the best place in the UK from which to fight the climate crisis. Calm down, Bristol, European Green Capital 2015: yes, you are incredibly woke, too. Only, you are not home to the UK’s first (and still only) Green party MP, Saint Caroline Lucas, or the UK’s highest number of Green councillors – 19, as of May’s elections. The Greens also topped the polls in last month’s European elections, with 35.7% of the vote. However, you may struggle slightly to square the property prices – of London proportions – with your belief that a truly green philosophy entails a fundamental restructuring, if not overthrow, of capitalist economics. But at least you will seldom spot a Daily Mail in your neighbour’s recycling.

The case against 
Embrace the grime, love the seediness. Ditto with stag/hen parties, Bez-alikes partying like it’s 1999, and sundry eccentrics. Don’t mention S******* Railway.

Well connected? 
I said, don’t mention S******* Railway. Trains: north to London Bridge (66 mins) and beyond, or London Victoria (1 hr); east to Eastbourne (40 mins) and Hastings (70 mins); west to Chichester (55 mins) and Portsmouth (1 hr 21 mins). Driving: its parking, traffic and one-way system are enough for you to dump your car; if not, Gatwick (eek) is 40 mins.

Primaries: all but one are “good”, Ofsted says, with Patcham Infant and Downs Junior and Infant “outstanding”. Secondaries: Patcham HighVarndean, Dorothy Stringer and Cardinal Newman Catholic are all “good”.

Hang out at… 
You won’t go thirsty, hungry or unentertained here. But top of the tree has to be meat-free Terre à Terre.

Where to buy 
The centre is “famous” Brighton, either the net of old cottages in the Lanes or North Laine conservation areas, or classic Regency or Victorian stucco in the grand squares, or cute streets off Western Road. More of the same, just less touristy, in Seven Dials, West Hill and Clifton Hill. Immediately north are Five Ways and the London Road neighbourhoods of stucco mid-Victorian terraces, and dense suburbs, such as Preston Park and Moulsecoomb (less cutesy, cheaper). Large suburban homes roll up and down the hills: Withdean (with Dyke Road, the priciest part of town), Patcham and Hollingbury.

Mr T & Ms S, Shoreham
Great conveyancing - far better than the larger firm I used previously and the one the estate agent pushed. Fast response, great communication throughout and very good price for quoted works. Thank you.
