Living in Hassocks? ;

Hassocks's nearest airport is Shoreham, Cecil Pashley Way Airport (9 miles). Gatwick South Terminal Airport is 17 miles, Gatwick North Terminal Airport is 17 miles and Shoreham Airport is 9 miles away and Hassocks train station is almost 1 mile from Hassocks.

Princess Royal is the nearest hospital.

Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a 473,000 house?

A.

Several conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees may inflate the final invoice. The quote must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any additional charges should be reasonable and clear and be applied only where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Earnley and Almodington, will we need a chancel search?

A.

A Hassocks conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we guarantee a fast exchange and completion in Hassocks?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a experienced solicitor is key buying faster. When choosing a solicitor, consider these points: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Does your company conduct auction conveyancing in Hassocks?

A.

Our firm is used to working with sellers at auction. Often unusual lots such as where located in disadvantaged or undesirable areas are purchased at auction and these necessitate supplementary due diligence. Solicitors therefore advocate that buyers at auction select a lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed investigation. Post auction day itself your now prepared lawyer is fully focused on completing all of the legal work inside a as tight time frame as conventionally required by the terms if sale.

Q.

What type of fact finding in relation to the risk of flooding in the West Sussex region will the Hassocks lawyer advise us on?

A.

An important part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves your lawyer applying for environmental searches that offer you information with respect to Hassocks historical flood risk. The most recent (03/02/13) indications at the Environment Agency don’t reveal any active flood warnings in the Hassocks area.

Q.

Do property searches need to be done?

A.

These searches are a standard pack of queries undertaken on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, for example a search of the Index Map, and cover solely issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Property solicitors in Hassocks order some searches when they are acting for a home buyer, but which specific searches?

A.

If applying for a mortgage the building society of bank requires you to a solicitor to get particular searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Hassocks searches such as Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

Can uranium contaminate Hassocks soil?

A.

There are laws imposed to manage soil contamination. The local authority for Hassocks will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
