Formerly part of the county of Lancashire, Moston became merged into the City of Manchester in the early 1980’s. Since the early 2000’s partnerships between Manchester City Council and major house builders have led to regeneration of large parts of North Manchester. The area now offers affordable and desirable homes for local families. If you are considering a home in North Manchester, our Conveyancing Solicitors in Moston are here for you.

Home regeneration projects in Moston

Located 3 miles north of the city centre, Moston is bordered by Failsworth, Harpurhey, Monsall and Newton Heath. The area is mainly suburban residential with a wide variety of homes available from ex-Local Authority houses, semi-detached and detached homes and newer builds. Being so close to the city centre, the area of Moston benefits from good transport links into and out of the city centre. For families, Moston benefits from several schools rated “Good” in recent Ofsted inspections, Broadhurst Park with numerous sporting facilities and also The Manchester College (formerly known as Manchester College of Arts and Technology.

Despite previously being synonymous as a problem area in Manchester, the local council has partnered with builders to focus on major regeneration projects across the whole of North Manchester including Moston. Terraced housing owned by the Housing Association that were falling into a state of disrepair were demolished and, in their place, new homes and estates were built. The new build housing estates were designed to use the existing road networks in the area. There was also a focus on making the houses low energy homes, affordable and of a style that was in demand at the time. As a part of the project, the Developers took an active role in the local community which included schemes to bring employment to local people and fund community projects. One of the most famous being the Manchester Youth Zone. Specialist homes also built as part of the regeneration projects to meet the needs to the local people such as independent living facilities.

The result of this is that affordable homes are available for local people in an area which has seen an upturn in recent years.

Finding the right conveyancer

It is widely accepted that selling and buying houses is in the list of the topmost stressful times in anyone’s life. We all accept that housing moving goes hand in hand with a degree of upheaval and requires good organisation, not least due to the number of people involved in the process, all with differing but key roles to play. Depending on whether you are part of a chain and the length of that chain, you will need to deal with the buyer and/or seller, an estate agent or agents, mortgage brokers, financial advisors and lenders, conveyancers and solicitors to deal with the legal and financial side of buying a house. There are also more practical considerations of actually living in the new property such as surveyors, house removal companies, service and utility providers, your local council. You will also need to take into account any work or school commitments you have as a family. Taking the time to select the right conveyancing solicitor can make the process a lot easier for you. Here at Express Conveyancing, our specialist team are on hand to provide a service you can trust.
