Robin Hood Airport is 10 miles from South Yorkshire. Gamston Airport is 24 miles and Sheffield City Airport is 16 miles away. South Yorkshire's nearest train station is Adwick.

South Yorkshire is under 1 mile of the A1M Junction 38 Northbound.

Q.

Local points of interest in South Yorkshire

A.

Brodsworth Hall & Gardens English Heritage and Kirk Sandall St Oswald Churches Conservation Trust are close to South Yorkshire.

The closest hospital is Doncaster, Park Hill.

Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Yorkshire for a £617,000 property?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How is South Yorkshire contaminated land checked when buying?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by environmental factors may affect property, like proximity to landfill sites or military land. An environmental search should offer more information. Contamination can be caused by South Yorkshire waste sites, including Beechwood House, Kilnhurst Road, South Yorkshire, S62 5TL.

Q.

We have a house to purchase. How do we aim for a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Key to a faster move is to instruct a communicative solicitor. There are, however, numerous tasks you as the purchaser can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • quickly answering your solicitor's questions
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage
  • calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • Q.

    In 2 months we are going to move from our terraced residence in South Yorkshire to a bigger building in Yorkshire, North Riding . What is the right point to book a removals firm?

    A.

    Most conveyancers will advocate that you hold off organising removals until such time as contracts have exchanged because a move date will not have been scheduled. Local home mover companies include Doncaster Delivery Service Man With Avan, 27/27/Laurel Terrace, Skellow, Doncaster, DN6 8AT Tel: 07407 474039 or James Valentine Removals, Park Nook Bannister Lane, Doncaster, DN6 8LT Call: 01924 850191.

    Q.

    In respect to the serious flooding in Leeds, I am questioning whether flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

    A.

    Flood risk searches applied for by your South Yorkshire lawyer will also include the far more informative flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

    If you are worried you could attempt to call a local resident.

    Q.

    We are purchasing a chapel in the parish of St Helen on the Walls and All Saints Peasholme. Will a chancel search be specified?

    A.

    Regardless of the South Yorkshire parish you are buying in, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of South Yorkshire, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a building where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

    Q.

    Can you state how to hold off paying out for stamp duty land tax?

    A.

    Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters.

    Q.

    The current owner has unfortunately added unsightly artificial stone cladding to the house in South Yorkshire which I think may breach conservation area rules

    A.

    The conveyancing solicitor should ascertain if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite consents from the Rotherham authority.
