Huyton's closest airport is Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport is 24 miles, Manchester Terminal 2 Airport is 23 miles, Howarden Airport is 19 miles and Eccles Airport is 19 miles away. Huyton's nearest train station is Huyton.

St Bartholomews Day Liverpool is the closest hospital.

Q.

We are looking for a cheap solicitor for selling a leasehold property. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may be added into small print. Busy, stressed sellers ignore these terms at their peril. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When buying a 1940s property within a conservation area in Huyton, how does one get information in relation to the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage have produced a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area.

Local conservation areas are created by Knowsley who oversee things like building materials to the halting of derelict buildings.

Q.

The owner appears to have installed inappropriate dormer windows on the home in Huyton which might possibly breach conservation area criteria

A.

The lawyer will establish whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have required permissions from the Knowsley planning authority.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with offices in Huyton?

A.

Homeward Legal have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders providing financing to Huyton home purchasers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include JP Financial, 18 Reedale Rd, Liverpool, L18 5HL, Myriad Mortgage Services, 1A Allerton Rd, Mossley Hill, Liverpool, L18 1LG, and Advanced Insurance & Mortgage Solutions, Po Box 105, Orrell Pk, Liverpool, L9 8WW.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am anxious that environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing searches applied for by your solicitor in Huyton should include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still worried you could consider contacting a future neighbour.

Q.

If we plan to purchase in the parish of Aughton, will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a Thirties Band C maisonette in Huyton?

A.

The council tax band should as a rule be identified as part of the report on title along with the local authority. The latest council tax rates for homes in Huyton are set out at the Knowsley local authority website. At the time of writing on 19 October 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £995.00
  • Band B - £1,160.00
  • Band C - £1,326.00
  • Band D - £1,492.00
  • Band E - £1,824.00
  • Band F - £2,155.00
  • Band G - £2,487.00
  • Band H - £2,984.00

Q.

Why can conveyancing in Huyton take so long? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes suffer setbacks even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the causes are out of the solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, appreciate how disruptive they may be and do our best to minimise the consequences of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Common delays may include difficulties with mortgage finance.
