Leeds Bradford Airport is 1 mile from Yeadon. Yeadon's closest station is Guiseley.

Menston, High Royds is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate in Yeadon?

A.

Several firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees included in the solicitor's terms should be fair. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

The Yeadon house being bought is on a brownfield site. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Yeadon. The local authority for Yeadon will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Does your company specialise the conveyancing of auction properties in Yeadon?

A.

Our company is very competent with property auction procedures. It is not uncommon for hard to value homes e. g. structurally defective property, are sold at property auctions and these necessitate deeper due diligence. Solicitors therefore advocate that purchasers decide on a an auction experienced lawyer well in advance of the property auction so there is time for an investigation of the auction legal papers.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we buy a period house in a Leeds local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

The local authority searches carried out by the solicitor should identify the existence of suitable permission for alterations to the building.

Q.

I am aiming to purchase a 1950's property, is it usually recommended that 'conveyancing searches' are done?

A.

Searches are standard queries ordered by the solicitor, for example a local authority search, and deal with legal considerations.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for any houses in Yeadon?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by environmental concerns can damage land in Yeadon. Contaminants including nearby waste management facilities will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

Is soil remediation of contaminated land available in Yeadon?

A.

A degree of remediation may be possible. Contact M J H Turf & Topsoil Supplies, 19 Bolton Rd, Yeadon, Leeds, LS19 7TN for more insight.

Q.

What research into the uncertain risk of possible flooding to properties in Yorkshire, West Riding will the Yeadon property lawyer advise us on?

A.

A vital part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves the lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out information in relation to Yeadon historical flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more thorough Yorkshire, West Riding database search (e.g Homecheck) may be suggested by a qualified Yeadon conveyancing solicitor if in the event that the initial searches highlight a flood risk. At the time of writing (05/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency don’t reveal any active flood warnings in Yeadon.
