What are the best home-mover destinations in East Sussex?

Brighton and Hove are historically part of East Sussex, though “London by the Sea” is now a unitary authority apart from the rest of the county. Without a doubt, however, Brighton is one of the jewels in the East Sussex crown, a vibrant and diverse city that wears its flamboyant crown well.

The biggest towns in East Sussex are Tunbridge Wells - also the closest to London - Hastings, Eastbourne and Lewes. Between all of these is a collection of delightful locations, including Battle and Rye, St Leonards-on-Sea and Ditchling.

Crowborough is a must for those who want to rub shoulders with A-list celebrities.

No Completion No Fee is our promise that in the unfortunate event that your property transaction falls-through you will not be liable for any of the conveyancer’s fixed legal fees for the work completed.

To secure this benefit a fee, already included in your quote, is taken upon on deciding to go ahead with your transaction.

Should your transaction fall through, for whatever reason, we can hold this amount on account for your next transaction or provide a refund.

Your Fixed Legal Fee** quote from Homeward Legal ensures that you pay no more than we have quoted you for and is based on the information you’ve provided to us being true and accurate.

There are specific circumstances on a minority of transactions that may require additional charges that could not be foreseen at the outset.

A list of those charges and explanations can be found here with details of the potential cost. These will only be charged following discussion with your conveyancer with a clear explanation of what they are for.
