The local area

With a name derived from its location at a crossing point of the River Mersey, there’s evidence of human settlement in the Stretford area from as far back as 2000 BC. The Celtic Brigantes tribe held the area before and during the Roman occupation of Britain, while there were two manors taking up the land now called Stretford by the year 1212. The construction of the Manchester Ship Canal and the Industrial Revolution brought significant growth to the town, which is the home to Manchester United’s Old Trafford football ground.

Just a few miles from the centre of Manchester, Stretford is linked to the city centre and other parts of Greater Manchester by the Metrolink tram system. It takes less than ten minutes to get to the city centre, while it’s around 15 minutes to Altrincham in South Manchester. Stretford is also conveniently located close to the M60 motorway, which is the ring road that loops around Manchester. When it’s time to go on holiday, Manchester Airport is only around seven miles away by car, a journey that can take less than 15 minutes in clear traffic. It’s also fairly easy to get to nearby towns such as Sale, Altrincham and Salford.

There are some highly rated schools in the local area if you’re looking to put your children through education, including St Ann’s RC Primary, Moss Park Primary and Chorlton CofE. Stretford Grammar is usually the highest achieving secondary school in the town, which also offers Stretford High and nearby schools like Lostock College, Sale Grammar and Urmston Grammar.

What's involved

Once you have your offer accepted, it’s time to get the ball rolling on legally transferring the ownership to you. Here’s how we do things at My Home Move Conveyancing.

First, your estate agents will send us a copy of the Memorandum of sale, which provides the details of the property, the amount offered and the name of the sellers and buyers and their conveyancers. You will be asked to complete your details and provide to us your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill.

If you are selling a house, you will need a Conveyancer to act for you – that’s where we come in!

You will be asked by us to complete your details and provide your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill. You will also be asked to fill in a Property Information form including some specific details about the property, its boundaries, any alterations to the property etc. If you have any additional paperwork such as planning permissions or notices, then these will be required by us to send with the contract papers. We will also ask you to complete a Fixtures, Fittings and Contents form to say what you will be taking and leaving behind. If the property is leasehold, you will be asked for information about who you pay ground rent and services charges to…

Read our Home Selling Process guide

After we have received your instructions to act we will check the legal issues and title to your property to ensure it offers a satisfactory security for your new lender, as this is the essence of a mortgage.

We will also check the amounts outstanding on any current mortgage registered on the property as these will have to be repaid at completion. The amounts will be confirmed with you.

Usually, we will not carry out Local, Drainage or Mining (if appropriate) searches as we will put in place an insurance which will protect your lender. This is less expensive for you and quicker. Some lenders still require that searches are made and will not rely on insurance. If this is the case the searches will have to be made and the cost will show on the Financial Statement sent to you.

At about the same time that you receive your Mortgage Offer we receive a copy together with the lender’s instructions to act for them. We will consider the Offer to ensure that we do those things required of us as the solicitors and to check what other conditions have to be satisfied.

We will then send you the Mortgage Deed to sign and any other documentation that may be required by your lender. We shall need to have this back from you as soon as possible and certainly by the day before we complete. Otherwise there will be a delay.

You need to check that the Mortgage Offer is acceptable to you. For example, is the mortgage amount and mortgage product correct? Is it the correct method of repayment? Are there any early repayment fees?

We target a completion date for 7 days after we receive our copy of the Mortgage Offer but our being able to complete depends on the terms of the Offer and any peculiarities of your transaction.

If the new mortgage amount is less than the amount we have to pay to your existing lender, we will ask for the difference from you, before the completion date.

Following completion we deal with the registration formalities to ensure the mortgage security is perfected for your lender and any deeds will then be sent to your lender for safe-keeping.

Note – If your property is leasehold, we also:

Request your landlord to confirm that all ground rent, service charges and insurance premiums (if applicable) have been paid to date and that there is no known breach of the lease.

Have to approve the wording of the lease.

Have to serve on the landlord a notice of discharge of your existing mortgage and a notice that a new mortgage has been given to your new lender.
