Why buy a home in Hebden Bridge?

Hebden Bridge is a market town in the Upper Calder Valley in West Yorkshire. Its name is derived from Anglo-Saxon, and the town 'took off' in the Industrial Revolution because the area's geography made it ideal for the siting of water-powered weaving mills. The town continued to develop in the 19th and 20th centuries, having a large economic focus on clothing manufacturing.

In the latter half of the 20th century, many artists, musicians and writers moved to the area and became a tourism focus. Additionally, it became a popular dormitory town for larger towns on both sides of the Pennines, including Manchester, Bradford, Leeds and Burnley.

Hebden Bridge's shops are virtually all independent boutiques, and landmarks and attractions include the Hardcastle Crags (picturesque countryside with great walks), the Hebden Bridge Picture House (an original 1920s Art Deco building), the Trades Club (rated as one of the best music venues in England), the Rochdale Canal (walks and pubs along the route), the ruined church of Heptonstall, the Stubbing Wharf Inn (made famous by Ted Hughes' poem of the same name) and the grave of Sylvia Plath, the prominent writer and poet (and the first wife of Ted Hughes) in the secondary graveyard of St. Thomas the Apostle Church.

Yes, if you're buying and selling simultaneously, the same conveyancing solicitor can handle both transactions, saving you money, as you'll only have to do the 'new client' admin once.

1. Get a mortgage in principle

Know what you can afford to save wasting time on any false starts.

2. Instruct your conveyancing solicitor before you make your offer

Waiting until your offer is accepted can delay your transaction. As early as possible, inform them of any details, such as gifted deposits. An online service reduces snail mail delays and waiting for physical meetings, which can be conducted by video call.

3. Apply for your mortgage quickly

You can submit your application as soon as your offer is accepted. An independent broker can help speed this along.

4. Order your searches and surveys

Ordering these early can speed up your conveyancing process, especially if local authorities face delays. However, it is usually considered prudent to time this with the rest of your chain if a transaction falls through.

5. Get your building insurance ready

You'll need insurance from the exchange so research & compare insurance quotes, once your solicitor is instructed.

6. Paperwork (When selling)

Ensure you have your paperwork, including energy performance & FENSA certificates.
