Thinking of moving to the area? Helpful regional transport and services facts and figures ;

Aintree's closest airport is Liverpool John Lennon Airport (10 miles). Blackpool International Airport is 22 miles, Howarden Airport is 22 miles and Eccles Airport is 23 miles away and Aintree's nearest station is Fazakerley at 1 mile s.

Commuters are well served with Aintree being well placed with very convenient road access very close at roughly 1m of the M57 Junction 7 Southbound.

Fazakerley Liverpool is the nearest hospital to Aintree.

Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £641,000 home? I need an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Fees should be clearly defined.

Q.

We are going to buy a sixties building in the boundary of conservation area in Aintree. Where can I find details on the standard of upkeep?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by the local Sefton planning authority, who are responsible for things like area development to the deterrence of modern telephone boxes. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

How long does it take the property solicitor to exchange all of the legal work for a flat in a forties building we hope to buy?

The legal process can take anywhere from one month to 12 weeks, which can be affected by various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or contentious issues that may arise.

Our conveyancing solicitors are notably proactive you moving home as rapidly as we possibly can.

Q.

The owner appears to have fitted unfitting roof aerials on the flat in Aintree which might possibly break conservation area guidelines

A.

Your property lawyer will always identify if your new home is within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have required permission from the local planning authority.

Q.

I am completing next March. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated with reference to the valuation. It is £0 on a £94000 property.*

Q.

Will the property's fixtures and fittings list the boiler?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Aintree. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Aintree. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Is a building survey advisable when we are buying a house?

A.

It is suggested that Aintree buyers book a RICS survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which can negatively affect a property, including subsidence.
