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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

If I am buying a property on the same street as priory grounds in Battle, do you need a chancel search?

A.

Chancel liability can require owners in Battle to contribute towards upkeep of churches. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Battle Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include Church of the Ascension and St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Are there many lenders with Battle branches?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Battle, such as Richmond Finance Services, London House/Manchester Rd, Ninfield, Battle, TN33 9JX.

Q.

We are intending to buy a chapel in the parish of Warnham. Will we need a chancel search?

Regardless of the Battle parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to charge chancel repairs on current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What search enquiries does a conveyancer in Battle apply for when buying a Battle property?

A.

The standard conveyancing procedure is to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific searches, like a Official Search of whole without priority.

Q.

We are buying in Battle on a new-build ex-industrial use land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like titanium (Ti)?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Battle. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as sewage and hazardous gases.

Q.

The property seller looks to have fitted unfitting roof aerials to the house in Battle which we think might possibly violate local conservation area guidelines

A.

Your property solicitor will carry out searches see if your proposed purchase is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate permissions.

Q.

Should we instruct a property lawyer suggested by the agent?

A.

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.
