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.

How soon should you instruct a solicitor to act for us?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Hassocks conveyancing early can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.

Q.

Can you explain why conveyancing for a Hassocks property purchase requires weeks?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a house or flat could be lengthy. We see how frustrating such delays may be and aim to lessen the impact of these delays by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the assistance of a solicitor in Hassocks appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a flat. However, would it actually be prudent ?

A.

There are no arguments why you cant adopt a DIY approach and complete the conveyancing without a skilled solicitor in Hassocks. The truth is however that a property solicitor is

familiar with a huge array of tasks such as chasing deeds and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant most of which need a qualified solicitor.

Even more importantly amateur lawyers will not be covered by sufficient insurance cover that all firms and their solicitors are made responsible to be covered by.

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.

Our estate agent in Heath Hayes has put forward a conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Should I instruct this firm?

A.

Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

As a result of the widespread surface water flooding in Worthing and West Sussex we are wondering whether conveyancing searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

A conveyancer in Hassocks will advise you to include detailed conveyancing searches if the enviro search establishes a any kind of local Hassocks flood risk.

For extra assurance you may be able to contact a local resident or nearby West Sussex flood damage builder - e.g. Harris P D Ltd, The Granaries/Henfield Rd, Albourne, Hassocks, BN6 9JJ Tel: 01273 492716.

Q.

If we are buying on the same road as a 1700s vicarage in Hassocks, is it recommended that I get a chancel search?

A.

Some owners in Hassocks can be required to pay for upkeep of specific local church buildings. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Hassocks Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church lands in Hassocks where a chancel search may be necessary include St Francis of Assisi.
