Salford, within Greater Manchester, is steeped in the history of industrial Manchester. With its eclectic mix of houses and proximity to Manchester city centre, it is easy to understand why Salford is a popular place to live. With our Conveyancing Solicitors in Salford, we can help make your move as smooth as possible for you.

Why is Salford one of the top places to live in Manchester?

Salford is one of the ten boroughs that make up Greater Manchester. Named after the largest town within the borough, the towns of Salford, Swinton, Eccles, Pendlebury, Walkden and Irlam are all located within borough of Salford. Sitting in the middle of the list for Manchester population numbers according to a recent census, Salford is less densely populated than some of the neighbouring boroughs such as Bury, Bolton and Manchester City.

In the 1800’s Salford’s population rose dramatically as part of the Industrial Revolution when families relocated to the area to work in the textile industry, on the Manchester Ship Canal and at the Manchester Docks. Once overseas competition had a negative effect on the textile industry and the inability of the Dock and canal network to accommodate large international container ships, the area fell into a decline. In the 1970s and 1980’s Salford saw a change in fortune due to redevelopment, Salford was awarded city status in 1974 and the former Salford Dock section of Manchester Docks was renamed Salford Quays.

Today Salford is home to the popular University of Salford, shopping centres such as the Lowry Outlet and Quayside MediaCityUK offering both high street and designer fashion, several museums and art galleries and MediaCityUK where many broadcasters are now based, including the BBC.

Salford offers a wide range of property types from converted mill buildings, new builds and flats to more suburban neighbourhoods full of family homes with good schools and parks. Our conveyancing solicitors in Salford have a wealth of experiencing at handling all types of properties and so are on hand to help with your next home move.

Who is the right conveyancer for me?

Everyone accepts that buying a house is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. There will be an element of upheaval and it can take quite a bit of organising as there can be many people involved in the process. You will need to communicate with the buyer and/or seller, any estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders, solicitors and conveyancers and also more practical elements such as removal firms, utility and service providers, local councils and possibly schools or work depending on your individual family needs. Choosing the right conveyancer at the start of the process can help make much of this smoother.

It is important that your conveyancer is experienced in the specifics of your transaction. Although the conveyancing process is broadly similar regardless of the type of house you are buying or selling, each type of property requires a specific skill set to handle. For example, new build homes differ from leaseholds and freeholds. The type of finance you are using to fund the purchase also requires specialist handling. You should therefore discuss the experience of your chosen conveyancer to make sure they have the necessary experience to handle your transaction and handle it well. You also need to feel comfortable from the outset with the team you are trusting with your next home move. Here at Express Conveyancing, we ensure we speak with all clients at the outset either via telephone or email, to make sure we fully understand what a client is instructing us to handle.
