Newhaven and health information and addresses ;

Shoreham, Cecil Pashley Way Airport is 15 miles from Newhaven. and Newhaven's nearest station is Newhaven Town.

The nearest hospital for Newhaven is Lewes Victoria.

Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor to own a house?

A.

This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Any costs should be fair and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would arranging a building survey be a good idea when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is strongly suggested that the majority of purchasers in Newhaven arrange a surveyor when buying in Newhaven. There can be a wide range of problems which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These can include subsidence and settlement.

Q.

Can I check that a building is in one of Newhaven's areas of conservation?

A.

Conservation areas cover areas of special architectural or historic interest. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and

discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

Do we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Newhaven.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Michael's.

Q.

Can you explain why conveyancing takes so long?

A.

The conveyancing process may suffer setbacks even in ideal circumstances. Some causes are unfortunately out of the solicitor's hands, we, however, do our best to curtail the effect of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

I have read about the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began, we are questioning if flood searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by your Newhaven solicitor will also include a more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still concerned try to approach a local resident.

Q.

Are Land Registry office copies fees or disbursements?

A.

Disbursements and fees ought to be identified on the quote for your conveyancing. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

The vendor looks to have added out of place PVC windows in Newhaven which we think might exclude local conservation area guidelines

A.

A solicitor is required to check if your new home is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary consent from the local authority.
