West Yorkshire is close at roughly 1/2 mile off the M621 Junction 3 Westbound.

Leeds Bradford Airport is 7 miles from West Yorkshire. Leeds station is about 1 mile from West Yorkshire.

Leeds is a nearby hospital for West Yorkshire.

Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs can inflate your final invoice. Fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. A quote for conveyancing in West Yorkshire should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted out of place artificial stone cladding on the building which I think might possibly violate the Canning Street conservation area rules.

A.

Your solicitor is required to see whether your proposed purchase is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary consents.

Q.

Do you need searches for chancel liability when I am purchasing in West Yorkshire?

A.

Where land in West Yorkshire was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund upkeep of local churches. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the protected West Yorkshire conservation areas are in a poor state?

A.

The determination of the state of West Yorkshires conservation areas is noted by English Heritage, and the following areas and information are currently available at English Heritage - Akroydon is designated as poor with medium vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Elland is designated as very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Todmorden is designated as poor with low vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Holmfirth is designated as poor with high vulnerability and no significant change, Dewsbury is designated as very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating condition.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Accord Mortgages Ltd, what will we need to know?

A.

Purchasers should consider that a small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, can act on behalf of many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by the solicitor in West Yorkshire should also include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are worried why not try to speak to a future neighbour.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in West Yorkshire do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders assisting West Yorkshire home purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in West Yorkshire include Standard Life, Princes Exchange/2 Princes Sq, Leeds, LS1 4HY. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move will be able to confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.

Q.

How much will the conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary substantially, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.
