Practical local Burgess Hill public transport and public service information

Burgess Hill's nearest airport is Shoreham, Cecil Pashley Way Airport. Gatwick South Terminal Airport is 15 miles, Gatwick North Terminal Airport is 15 miles and Shoreham Airport is 12 miles away and Burgess Hill, Car Park train station is almost a mile from Burgess Hill.

Princess Royal is the neighbouring hospital.


How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are purchasing a medieval barn conversion in Herstmonceux. Will a chancel search be compulsory?


Your solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. In Burgess Hill's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Herstmonceux, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


In about five weeks we are hoping to move out of our terraced property near Burgess Hill into our next flat in Bognor Regis , when to select a removal company?


We usually encourage home sellers hold off booking a removals company until the point where contracts have exchanged because a definitive moving date will not have been confirmed. As a rule firms add an additional a late cancellation levy

For a local West Sussex firm Direct Transport, 10 Brookway, Burgess Hill, RH15 0LL Tel: 01444 250004 or Eddie Removal, 16 Dumbrills Cl, Burgess Hill, RH15 8RR Call: 01444 247184.


If I buy a book about the conveyancing process when selling a house , Would it be realistic to enact the legal conveyancing process on our own?


If you are so inclined refer to the various books, you can practically undertake the bulk of the your own conveyancing without using a proficient Burgess Hill lawyer. However, a solicitor is familiar with a huge array of skilled tasks including chasing any outstanding docs and checking for any restrictive covenants many of which need a skilled professional. Essentially amateur lawyers are not covered by the correct insurance cover that all legal firms are under a duty to be in possession of.


Do you need to get a chancel search if I am buying a Burgess Hill residence on the same road as a church constructed around the 14th Century?


The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Church lands in Burgess Hill which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew, St Edward the Confessor, St John the Evangelist and The Point Mid Sussex Network Church.


Are there many conservation areas in Burgess Hill?


Conservation areas pinpoint areas designated as being of historical or architectural value. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


What fact finding as respects the risk of local flooding at West Sussex will a Burgess Hill conveyancing solicitor advise on for a seventies property we intend to purchase?


An experienced conveyancing lawyer applies for standard property conveyancing searches that incorporate Burgess Hill flood risk area data.


Do I need to instruct the law firm often used by our agent?


Agent referrals are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.
