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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
