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've had a quote from you. Might I be charged any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra charges to transfer a property. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Which neighbourhoods of Guiseley are protected by a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas distinguish local areas of architectural or historic interest. The lawyer handling your purchase should be able to advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

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.

Is contaminated land an issue for residential properties in Guiseley?

A.

Several contaminants could irreparably damage Guiseley property, such as brine works. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

In respect to the serious flooding in York I am wondering if flood searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by a Guiseley lawyer should also include the more in depth Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

Perhaps you could converse with a next door neighbour for additional more comfort.

Q.

What can a Guiseley property lawyer do when the home I hope to invest in is in a registered conservation area and has unsanctioned windows installed?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will always find out whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate consent from the local planning authority.

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.
