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.

Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

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.

Q.

What will a Burgess Hill property solicitor do when the flat is in a conservation area and has unsuitable doors added?

A.

A property solicitor will determine if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have required consent from the Mid Sussex council.

Q.

Property conveyancing searches may be standard procedure but with current events e g the surface water flooding in West Sussex are they actually good enough to see sufficient information about the evolving Burgess Hill risk of flooding?

A.

Conveyancing searches handled by your lawyer in Burgess Hill will also include the far more specialist Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

It could be worth trying to also speak to a next door neighbour for additional further assurance if you are still worried.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Burgess Hill?

A.

Burgess Hill is located in Mid Sussex District Council, Oaklands, Oaklands Road, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH16 1SS, Tel: 01444 458 166

Q.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Chelsea Building Society - what will I need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders.

Q.

Is a survey a good idea when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age, in Burgess Hill?

A.

It is highly recommended that all buyers arrange a RICS survey. Many problems will impact a property, such as unsafe chimney circulation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Is your solicitor team able to act quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Burgess Hill?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors frequently do the legal work for bidders at auction. Homeward Legal strongly encourage bidders to formally instruct a lawyer before the property auction date for a review.

Immediately following the auction your appointed solicitor is wholly prepared for concluding the legal work within a as tight time frame as usually required .

Q.

How is stamp duty rates determined, what will it be on a £280k property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay is based on the purchase price. It will be £8400 on a £280k home.*
