Chichester attractions and landmarks

Halnaker Sussex Windmill, Chichester St John the Evangelist Churches Conservation Trust and Fishbourne Roman Palace Archaeological Site are near to Chichester.

Bembridge IoW, Sandown Rd Airport is 18 miles from Chichester. Shoreham Airport is 21 mile s, Bembridge IoW Airport is 19 miles and Sandown IoW Airport is 23 miles away. Chichester's closest train station is Chichester at 1 mile s.

The neighbouring hospital for Chichester is St Richards Chichester.

Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Several solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

If you are buying a maisonette near priory land in Chichester, is it advisable that we get a chancel search?

A.

Owners of property neighbouring a medieval church must fund repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Chichester property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Churches in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, St George, Whyke, St Pancras and St Paul.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Henley On Thames has named the property solicitor that they have used before. Will it be easier to use this solicitor?

A.

The Henley On Thames agent will often endorse a law firm. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We need to know which Chichester lenders your solicitors work with. Which panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership are able to work with all the major lenders assisting Chichester homebuyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Personal Mortgage Service, Forum House Business Centre/Stirling Rd, Chichester, PO19 7DN, and Danrosads Mortgages, Po Box 651, Chichester, PO19 9JE.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining copies of building regulation approval disbursements or fees?

A.

Some firms pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

In what ways can a property solicitor in Chichester advise me on the risk and history of possible flooding at Chichester on a Regency home I am wanting to purchase?

A.

A conveyancer will apply for property conveyancing searches that incorporate Chichester area flood risk information. Furthermore the Chichester conveyancing solicitor will often suggest a significantly more involved flood search.

Q.

Having read about the widespread water flooding in Worthing I am anxious that property conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Chichester property solicitor will include a far more rigorous Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

You could always speak to a close neighbour for that further peace of mind.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Chichester?

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural merit, like fishing villages, may be designated as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Chichester include Graylingwell. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.
