Drivers are well served with Southsea ideally situated with very good major road access under 3 miles off the M275.

Southsea's nearest train station is Southsea Hoverpt and Southsea's closest airport is Bembridge IoW, Sandown Rd Airport. Southampton Airport is 17 miles, Bembridge IoW Airport is 8 miles and Sandown IoW Airport is 11 miles away.

St Marys Portsmouth is the nearest hospital for Southsea.

Q.

We are trying to find a cheap solicitor to sell a home. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. A quote for conveyancing in Southsea should, in addition, define any disbursements.

Q.

Which Southsea lenders do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal group work with all the major lenders assisting home purchasers in Southsea. Southsea lenders and mortgage specialists include HSBC Bank, 106 Albert Rd, Southsea, PO5 2SD, Christie Financial Services Ltd, 97 Albert Rd, Southsea, PO5 2SG, and Mortgage Source, 17 Clarendon Rd, Southsea, PO5 2ED.

Q.

Will we need a property surveyor to check for issues affecting the property purchase?

A.

It is strongly advised that Southsea property purchasers order a property survey. A wide range of defects will impact a property, for example ground movement.

Q.

Might the charges for my conveyancing hide any extra fees?

A.

Regrettably, hidden fees are relatively common. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra charges. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £246,000 home, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Crucial to buying faster is to instruct a proactive property lawyer. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

Should I use a conveyancing who often works with by our estate agent in Walton on the Naze?

A.

The agent will push a law firm. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

In about five weeks we are going to be finally moving from our semi detached residence just outside Southsea into our next flat in Romsey . When to select a house removal firm?

A.

The best advice is for buyers to wait before booking a removal firm until the point where you and the other side has set a date that occurs after exchange of contracts. There are many local and national companies including Moore Dave, 27 Percy Road, Southsea, PO4 0BH Tel: 023 9275 6541.

Q.

Flood searches are determined from past records and when you consider current events e g the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began, are they the ideal way to see sufficient information about the Southsea flood risk?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor in Southsea will recommend that you include flood searches if the initial search spots a any kind of risk of flooding in Southsea.

Property purchasers sometimes get in touch with a neighbour for that more local information if you are still worried or regional Hampshire flooding repair expert try C T McCann Contractors, The Garages Unit 1a Kirkstall Road, Southsea, PO4 0SX Tel: 023 92831925.
