Your solicitor would tend to recommend that buyers and sellers hold off booking a removals company until after exchange of contracts as the firm moving date wont have been formally agreed. The majority of home removals companies charge a change of date amount . There are many local and national companies including Beacon Removals, 9 Crowborough Mews/Mill La, Crowborough, TN6 1BY Phone: 01892 263646 or Pritchards Removals, 22 Heather Walk, Crowborough, TN6 2HA Tel: 07894 514081.Q.
With the history of industry in parts of Crowborough, topsoil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.Q.
Unfortunately, some firms pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.Q.
Your solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.Q.
