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.

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.*

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Burgess Hill?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint areas designated as being of historical or architectural value. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

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.

Do you need to get a chancel search if I am buying a Burgess Hill residence on the same road as a church constructed around the 14th Century?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Church lands in Burgess Hill which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew, St Edward the Confessor, St John the Evangelist and The Point Mid Sussex Network Church.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with Burgess Hill branches?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders assisting Burgess Hill purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Burgess Hill include Sussex Mortgage Centre, 207 Lower Church Rd, Burgess Hill, RH15 9AA.

Q.

Is the High Speed Two line going to impact Banbury properties?

A.

Yes, Phase 1 of HS2 will likely impact properties in Banbury. This initial stage of HS2 will affect 23 local councils running through Banbury, from London to Birmingham.

Q.

We are purchasing a medieval barn conversion in Herstmonceux. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

Your solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. In Burgess Hill's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Herstmonceux, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
