As confirmed by the most recent census (2011), Telford's population is 212,061 spread over an area of 200,195 acres meaning a residential population density 1.1 people per acre.

Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 14 miles from Telford. and Telford Central train station is approximately a mile from Telford.

Motorists are well catered for with Telford enjoying excellent major road access around 1/2 mile off the M54 Junction 5 Eastbound.

Q.

Local Telford attractions

A.

Telford Shrop Windmill, Stirchley St James Churches Conservation Trust and Buildwas Buildwas Abbey English Heritage are around Telford.

The nearest hospital is Princess Royal, Telford.

Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements). Any additional fees listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable.

Q.

When do we need to find a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are various tasks that may be performed very early in the process. Instructing a firm early can limit the risk of the transaction stalling.

Q.

If a contaminated plot is found in an Telford environmental search, can the soil be easily remedied?

A.

Where property in Telford has been contaminated, remediation is possible is some cases, but costly. Contact a Telford specialist such as Pitchcare.Com, Allscott Pk, Allscott, Telford, TF6 5DY for more insight.

Q.

I am selling in Telford, and have had a quote from you. Could there be any hidden costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not hide any additional costs to buy or sell a home. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in 2012 in the Midlands, I am questioning if flood searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by your property solicitor in Telford should also include the far more detailed flood search if required.

You can also get in touch with a neighbour of the property to gain added peace of mind or local Shropshire flood damage expert - e.g. Rainbow International, Rainbow House/78 New Rd, Madeley, Telford, TF7 5DD Tel: 01952 680470.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £448k residence, what should we get to speed up our move?

A.

Essential to a fast transaction is to employing a communicative property lawyer. When finding a property lawyer, you should ask the following: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Do they use email? How soon will they order searches?

Q.

I am buying in Telford with Metro Bank, is there anything we need to know?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For home buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We, however, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Unforeseeable circumstances mean we have to exchange contracts on the sale of our leasehold apartment very quickly, do you any property auction specialist especially fast Telford solicitors ?

A.

Often property solicitors are very ponderous adding large amounts of anguish to the home legal process.

Homeward Legals approach is different - we always use the latest local authority and land registry integrated systems . Crucially we give you a SRA regulated solicitors qualified to communicate from the start to the end of the home buyer and seller chain .
