Commuting to Hillsborough? ;

Sheffield train station is almost 3 miles from Hillsborough and Sheffield City Airport is 5 miles from Hillsborough. Robin Hood Airport is 21 mile s, Gamston Airport is 25 miles and away.

The most convenient hospital to Hillsborough is Weston Park Sheffield.

Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £547,000 home? I need a low cost conveyancing estimate.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Extra charges found in the terms should be reasonable.

Q.

Could our conveyancing charges take into account any extra costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden charges. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Is it recommended to bypass paying for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid on houses valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Hillsborough, as such schemes are costly and very risky.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings form list items such as curtain rails?

A.

New owners are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over which fixtures and fittings will be included. 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 resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.

Q.

How do you determine stamp duty tax, and what will we need to pay on a £277k Hillsborough residence?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay will depend on the valuation. It is £8310 on a £277k house or flat in Hillsborough.*

*This information correct as of March 2013

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Which Hillsborough mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

Of lenders with branches in or near Hillsborough, Homeward Legal work in conjunction with most. Hillsborough lenders and mortgage specialists include Moving On Up, 19 Goodison Cr, Sheffield, S6 5HT, and First Enterprise Mortgages, Faith Works/Club Mill Rd, Sheffield, S6 2FH.

Q.

Where do we find out additional data the status of Hillsborough and Hillsborough conservation areas?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a detailed list of the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend.

Local Hillsborough conservation area issues, for example what can be demolished or new developments are governed by the local authority (Sheffield).
