Are you thinking of re-locating to the Battle area? Pertinent nearby services facts -

The nearest train station to Battle is Crowhurst, almost 2 miles away. Battle's nearest airport is Lydd Airport (20 miles).

The neighbouring hospital for Battle is St Leonards on Sea, Sussex.


How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £381,000 house?


Many online and high street solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in small print. Additional fees found in the terms should be fair. They only be applied if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Does the report on title compiled by the property solicitor in Battle report back on the cost of council tax for a Band H cottage prior to exchange?


The lawyer will speak to the Hastings local council to find out the currently applicable council tax charges which should then be detailed in the title report. Correct charges for Battle are listed on the Hastings local authority website. As at, 06 July 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,076.00
  • Band B - £1,256.00
  • Band C - £1,435.00
  • Band D - £1,614.00
  • Band E - £1,973.00
  • Band F - £2,332.00
  • Band G - £2,691.00
  • Band H - £3,229.00


When in the conveyancing process is it wise to find a solicitor in Battle?

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, as soon as possible, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.


Which local authority is responsible for Battle?


Battle is located in Rother District Council, Town Hall, Bexhill- on- Sea, East Sussex, TN39 3JX, contact: 01424 787 878


I am buying soon and have a quote from you. Will there be any hidden charges?


No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden fees for your conveyancing legal work. Sometimes a significant piece of other legal work is also necessary, . Your solicitor will discuss these as necessary.


Should we instruct a property lawyer suggested by the agent?


Your Woolton agent will have influence over a solicitor they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore induce a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


Is a building survey required when we are purchasing any property?


It is advised that the majority of buyers book a house survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which can affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, such as corrosion of pipework or rotten roof timbers.


Please give reasons why the sale conveyancing process goes on for so long?


The conveyancing process in Battle could be held up even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, the causes are out of a solicitor's control. Homeward Legal strive to diminish their consequences wherever reasonable by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay include the time taken to return management information.
