Local travel information

Leeds Bradford Airport is 10 miles from Middleton. Middleton's closest train station is Outwood.

Motorists are well catered for with Middleton enjoying excellent motorway access very close at approximately half a mile of the M1/M621.

Wakefield, Fieldhead is the neighbouring hospital.

Q.

We are trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Can you assist?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Middleton conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Middleton do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Middleton are on our panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Middleton include O'Neill Financial Planning, 101 Dale St, Milnrow, Rochdale, OL16 3NW, SG Mortgage Solutions, 18 Derwent Dr, Littleborough, OL15 0BT, and Porter Robert J, 3 Shayfield Av, Chadderton, Oldham, OL9 9UW.

Q.

Can we avoid paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid for property purchases over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not recommended, because these schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

What amount of time should we plan for the conveyancing process usually require?

A.

The amount of time required to transfer a house does vary, affected by numerous issues affecting the property including whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas Homeward Legal aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Chapelthorpe, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. In older areas of Middleton, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where Parochial Church 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.

Do you have fast solicitors that have a lot of experience at property auction conveyancing in Middleton?

A.

Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Middleton commonly do the legal conveyancing buyers and sellers at auction. We often recommend buyers to formally appoint a fast property lawyer prior to the date of the auction for an investigation of the legal documents. Following the auction day itself a prepared lawyer needs to be geared up to conclude the conveyancing process within the 28 day time frame as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

We are purchasing a £507000 Middleton property. What will be calculated for stamp duty tax?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that will be due is calculated based on the home's value. On a £507000 residential property, stamp duty will be £20280.

Q.

Might charges for the conveyancing hide any additional costs?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any additional costs for any reason. Your conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price the legal costs for your transaction.
