Warrington's closest airport is Eccles, Barton Aerodrome Airport. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 12 miles, Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport is 14 miles, Manchester Terminal 2 Airport is 14 miles, Howarden Airport is 22 miles and Eccles Airport is 11 miles away and the closest train station to Warrington is Warrington Central, approximately 1 mile away.

Warrington is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Warrington.

A.

Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied home owners We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are anxious that conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches carried out by the Warrington conveyancing solicitor will include the far more detailed Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are still apprehensive you can always approach a neighbour of the property or local Cheshire flood repair builder, such as: Elite Property Services (NW) Ltd, 41 West Ave, Stockton Heath, Warrington, WA4 6HU Tel: 01925 670550.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings', in relation to our Warrington house purchase?

A.

The ‘fixtures and fixtures’ list includes anything that can be removed from the property such as carpets, curtain poles, lighting and door handles, though this is very dependent on your individual purchase.

Homebuyers are regularly frustrated by the lack of clarity around fixtures and fittings, and what is actually included.

The fixtures and fittings form is meant to avoid confusion, making it clear what is included with the sale of the house, but you will want to make sure the seller gives it to you early on to avoid a dispute.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period semi-detached building in Warrington?

A.

Typically the report on title will contain the relevant Warrington council tax band. The latest tax charges for Warrington are set out at the Warrington local authority website. At the time of writing (12 July 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £917.00
  • Band B - £1,070.00
  • Band C - £1,222.00
  • Band D - £1,375.00
  • Band E - £1,681.00
  • Band F - £1,986.00
  • Band G - £2,292.00
  • Band H - £2,750.00

Q.

When will our Warrington conveyancing be finished?

A.

Your conveyancing will be finished within 8 -12 weeks, sometimes less, sometimes more. The reason it takes so long is because there are a lot of complicated legal matters for your solicitor to attend to and these take time, though our solicitors do try to complete in less time than this.

If you are in a rush, see our guide to speeding up your conveyancing or speak to one of our team.

Q.

When my partner and I are purchasing in Warrington, will you need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Property owners in Warrington may be subject to chancel repair liability. Some names or words such as 'rectory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Warrington churches include St Margaret & All Hallows, Holy Trinity, St Philip`s Ecumenical Church Westbrook and Holy Trinity.

Q.

Can you state how to avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.

Q.

How can we check if a house is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as fishing villages, will be registered as conservation areas. Bewsey Street Bewsey, Bridge Street Town Centre and Town Hall Town Centre are among the conservation areas in Warrington. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
