Blackpool International Airport is 2 miles from St Annes. The closest station to St Annes is St Annes on Sea, almost 1 mile away.

Lytham St Annes, Clifton is the closest hospital to St Annes.


I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in St Annes. What do we need to check for?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs can inflate your final invoice. A quote for conveyancing in St Annes should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra fees should be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


Will my conveyancing solicitor in St Annes report back to me about the cost of council tax on a Band B flat prior to exchange of contracts?


The property solicitor will liaise with the council to ascertain the appropriate council tax charges which will subsequently be detailed in the conveyancer's title report. Council tax charges for homes in St Annes are published on the Fylde local authority site. At the time of writing on 21 September 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,022.00
  • Band B - £1,192.00
  • Band C - £1,362.00
  • Band D - £1,533.00
  • Band E - £1,873.00
  • Band F - £2,214.00
  • Band G - £2,554.00
  • Band H - £3,065.00


We are going to sell our freehold residence at a residential property auction shortly, will your panel allocate fast home moving solicitors in St Annes ?


Generally house moving property lawyers are extremely laid back which creates huge amounts of stress to the home selling process.

Homeward Legals approach to conveyancing is to use state of the art productivity systems . Critically , we look after you with a solicitor qualified to communicate to the whole buyer and seller chain .


Which issues help with getting a fast completion?


As is widely reported, moving faster is key to instruct a experienced solicitor. There are numerous tasks you, as the buyer, could do, such as, answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible, requesting status updates from the solicitor regularly and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.


What will the St Annes conveyancing lawyer advise if the flat is within a Fylde planning authority conservation area and has unapproved satellite dishes added?


The local authority searches conducted by a solicitor during the legal process will determine the existence of the appropriate authorisation for modifications to the property.


Environmental searches are fine but in light of recent climactic events for instance the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they sufficient to check enough about the St Annes future flood risk?


A qualified conveyancing solicitor in St Annes should also get in depth property environmental searches (Landmark search) if the environmental searches determine a any kind of St Annes flooding risk.

You could always get in touch with a neighbour or local resident for further local information.


Can doing the conveyancing myself save any cash?


Hypothetically speaking there is absolutely no reason at all why a home mover cant adopt a DIY approach and undertake the bulk of the conveyancing unaided.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a long list of tasks including approving contract and checking replies to additional enquiries some of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. Moreover firms and their solicitors need to be covered by insurance cover that protects you from any professional carelessness.

Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Skipton Building Society, 19 Wood St, Lytham St. Annes, FY8 1QR, and Mortgage Options UK Ltd, 10 The Crescent, Lytham St. Annes, FY8 1SZ.
