Castleford is situated in West Yorkshire and is a popular place to live. With the River Aire to the north of the town and plenty of parks in and around Castleford, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore these areas of Castleford once you’ve moved into the area. The town also has a strong local economy, and is less than half an hour from both Leeds and Wakefield, meaning the town is popular with commuters into these cities. In the last year alone, reallymoving has helped 178 people move into the area.
Whether wanting a standard HomeBuyer Report or needing a Building Survey for a property near the Aire to check it hasn’t been affected by past flooding, it is absolutely crucial you get a Chartered Surveyor to survey your property. RICS has reported that 1 in 5 people that did not get a survey when buying their house now regret their purchase as they have had to make unexpected repairs down the line, so it is just not worth taking this risk just to save some money in the here and now.
Once you’ve moved in, the town also has plenty of attractions that you might want to check out. Whether going to Xscape Yorkshire, which contains an indoor snowdome and a bowling alley, taking the family to Castleford Tigers or for a walk around Fairburn Ings, there is plenty to do to keep you occupied.
