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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

If I buy a book about the conveyancing process when selling a house , Would it be realistic to enact the legal conveyancing process on our own?

A.

If you are so inclined refer to the various books, you can practically undertake the bulk of the your own conveyancing without using a proficient Burgess Hill lawyer. However, a solicitor is familiar with a huge array of skilled tasks including chasing any outstanding docs and checking for any restrictive covenants many of which need a skilled professional. Essentially amateur lawyers are not covered by the correct insurance cover that all legal firms are under a duty to be in possession of.

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 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.

We ideally need to exchange contracts on the legal process our auctioned flat rapidly, are you a fast solicitor in Burgess Hill ?

A.

Homeward Legal adopts a highly speed focused approach to completing the conveyancing work to meet the sellers needs. With us, lawyers attempt to communicate up and down the buyer and seller chain and that always employ advanced online completion systems to complete the property sale without hitch.
