A.

The closest hospital is Bexhill.

Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed windows to the house in Bexhill which may infringe on local conservation area criteria

A.

Your property solicitor will always check whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the requisite permission from the local planning authority.

Q.

Can cadmium contaminate Bexhill soil?

There are regulations imposed to manage topsoil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including chlorinated solvents.

Q.

What is the right point to I book a removal company?

A.

Best advice is for buyers to delay a removal company until the point where all parties have formalised your date that occurs once final contracts are signed. Commonly home removals firms will levy a cancellation amount

For a local firm Witham Bros Ltd, West Station Goods Yard/Terminus Rd, Bexhill On Sea, TN39 3LR Phone: 01424 218778.

Q.

How early do I need to speak to a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of your sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Bexhill?

A.

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

Q.

Should I get a chancel search if you are buying a property by a church constructed around the 1500s in Bexhill?

A.

Some owners in Bexhill can be required to contribute towards upkeep of older church buildings. Parochial Church Councils in Bexhill must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your solicitor can provide more details. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Stephen, St Peter, St Stephen and St Andrew.

Q.

We are buying a 1930s investment property in one of the conservation area in Bexhill. Where does one find details about the state of repair?

A.

Local conservation areas are specified by the local Rother planning authority, who administer things like the historic layout of roads to the obstruction of neon signs. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.
