Commuting to the Guiseley area? ;

The closest station to Guiseley is Guiseley. The closest airport to Guiseley is Leeds Bradford Airport (2 miles).

Menston, High Royds is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Additional fees listed in the small print should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

I am buying a maisonette in one of the conservation areas, how does one get details in regards to the standard of upkeep of the Guiseley conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have produced a detailed list of the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability. Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Leeds) who administer everything from what can be developed to the obstruction of traffic signs.

Q.

How much would the cost of the searches be?

A.

Guiseley conveyancing searches ranges in cost. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a drainage search and a mining search.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty in Guiseley, what should we budget for a £313000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on a small number of factors, primarily the value of the property. It is £9390 on a £313000 property.

Q.

What is the council tax on a period semi-detached home in Guiseley?

A.

More often than not a conveyancing report on title should provide the Leeds council tax band.

The latest council tax charges for properties in Guiseley are listed at the Leeds council website. Currently (24/02/2013) the rates are:

  • Band A - £875.00
  • Band B - £1,021.00
  • Band C - £1,167.00
  • Band D - £1,312.00
  • Band E - £1,604.00
  • Band F - £1,896.00
  • Band G - £2,187.00
  • Band H - £2,625.00

Q.

We are intending to buy a chapel in the parish of Attercliffe cum Darnall. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Guiseley, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

Is it a sensible idea to bypass paying out for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable for purchases priced at over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

What average time does it take our property solicitor to complete all of the conveyancing work on a terraced property?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from 3 weeks and twelve weeks, based on any number of things, such as the efficiency of the seller's conveyancer, or the communication, with managing agents.
