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.

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

A.

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.

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

A.

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.

Q.

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?

A.

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

Q.

Do your lawyers administer property auction conveyancing in Battle?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing solicitors do frequently carry out work for buyers and sellers at auction. We tend to inform auction buyers to select a local lawyer prior to the auction day to allow time for a detailed investigation of the auction legal pack,

Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction your selected property lawyer is totally ready for finishing the transaction within a as tight time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

How is contaminated land in Battle investigated?

A.

Battle property is contaminated by numerous natural and human-influenced issues, such as shallow mining. An environmental search will give more detail. Little Park Farm, Hooe Road, East Sussex, TN33 9EH is a source of potential local contamination in Battle.

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.

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

A.

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.
