As calculated by the 2011 national census Shrewsbury's population is 342,140 spread over an area of 1,500,094 acres (607,068 hectares) meaning a density of population of 0.2 people per acre (0.6 per hectare).
The nearest airport to Shrewsbury is Trehelig, Welshpool Airport. Trehelig Airport is 18 miles and Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 25 miles away. Shrewsbury's nearest train station is Shrewsbury at 1 mile s.
The nearest hospital is Nuffield Shrewsbury.Q.
This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can increase the final invoice. Any extra fees should be reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.Q.
Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to identify if the property is within a conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite permissions.Q.
The Stamp Duty you must pay will depend on the house or flat's value. It will be £1650 on a £165000 property.
There are laws in place to curtail soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Shrewsbury is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like organohalides, will also be included in an environmental search.Q.
A qualified residential property solicitor will apply for standard protocol property environmental searches, which include Shrewsbury flood risk data. A substantially more specialist flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be suggested by a lawyer in Shrewsbury if the results of the initial searches show a flood risk.Q.
Gazumping occurs when a seller agrees to one buyer's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a greater offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.Q.
With 9300 such areas listed in England, the areas in or near Shrewsbury include numerous conservation areas. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities, regarding specific conservation areas in Shrewsbury.Q.
A degree of remediation may be possible, but this is generally the responsibility of local authorities to arrange. Contact a local service provider e.g. Shropshire Turf & Soil, Fitz Manor/Fitz, Bomere Heath, Shrewsbury, SY4 3AS for more information.
