Regional services information and addresses ;

Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport is 7 miles from Levenshulme. Manchester Terminal 2 Airport is 7 miles and Eccles Airport is 9 miles away and Levenshulme's closest station is Levenshulme at 1 mile s.

Levenshulme is under 3m of the M60 junction entry 24 Westbound.

Q.

Levenshulme area info

A.

Heaton Norris Christ Church Tower Churches Conservation Trust and Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester Aviation Museum are in the vicinity of Levenshulme.

The nearest hospital to Levenshulme is Alexandra Manchester.

Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Levenshulme for a £186k home?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. A quote for conveyancing in Levenshulme should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extrasfound in terms and conditions should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I plan to buy a medieval barn conversion in Levenshulme. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Levenshulme's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately added incongruous window frames to the property in Levenshulme which I think may infringe on conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed property solicitor should confirm whether the property is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the Manchester planning authority.

Q.

We are going to buy with Prudential Banking, what will I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Buyers in Levenshulme need to be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of most lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

We are likely to move out of our semi detached building in Levenshulme into our new property in Leigh . At what point to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

Best practice is for buyers to avoid instructing the removals until after everyone has agreed an absolute home moving date that regularly occurs once signing of contracts.

For a local firm Man N Van, 25 Osborne Rd, Manchester, M19 2DU Tel: 07930 363533.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings include what?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as alarm systems to floors, walls and ceilings, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

I am purchasing a renovated building in the boundary of Levenshulme conservation area, how do I locate data on the standard of repair?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by Manchester who preside over things like upkeep of paths to the impediment of ugly shop fronts. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the trend of the area.

Q.

Which issues are important to ensure a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Contacting a proactive property lawyer is the key to buying faster. There are, however, several tasks you can also do to speed up the process. These include:

  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
  • contacting your property lawyer regularly
