Can anyone recommend a good solicitor, Local to Lewes would be better for a house sale.

Clive Smith has sorted about 8 houses or flats for a company I work with. I have used him for my own house both times (both without an estate agent), and never had any issues or anything missed (as far as I know.)
He has been around quite a long time as the first house was many years ago.

Used Rory McColl a couple of times. We negotiated a price with him and we were very happy with our sale and purchase despite there being some difficulties in the chain.

While it is good to support local businesses, you don't actually need your solicitor to be local when everything is done by email, and some Lewes solicitors charge top whack for work actually done by modestly-paid clerks.
As when considering new double glazing, when hiring a solicitor get more than one quote, and check what is available online. NEVER use the solicitor recommended by the seller's estate agent. For my last Lewes purchase I used a Lancashire-based legal chain who allocated the work to a clerk based in Southport. She was busy, but responsive, and the cost was half the best local (Brighton) quote. Everything seemed to go well, and I have someone with insurance to sue should anything devastating turn up in the future.
