Stockport is situated seven miles southeast of Manchester City Centre and is one of the largest towns in the North West of England. In the 16th century, it was a small settlement producing rope and hemp products. By the 18th century, it was a thriving industrial town, the home of silk production in the UK. The industrial Stockport landscape has since been the subject of many iconic scenes by one of Manchester’s greatest known artists, L.S. Lowry. The city is now a hub of creativity and regeneration.
As Stockport has historically been such an important hub for industry in this country, it has excellent transport connections to the surrounding areas, in particular Manchester City Centre. Anybody who has visited the city will know of the towering brick arches that carry the railway lines over the town. The regular Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston railway service with the tilting trains stops off at Stockport, this means you can travel to Manchester in only 10 minutes on one of the best railways lines in the country. Perfect for commuters!

The cost of each property transaction varies, as no two properties are identical and our fees adapt to meet the unique needs of your sale or purchase. For instance, handling a listed building might entail higher costs due to its added complexities compared to a new freehold property. Consequently, we cannot provide a precise estimate until we obtain information about your specific transaction. However, our conveyancing fees begin at £285 plus VAT.
