Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Bassetlaw ?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Bassetlaw , and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

That service came at a price, but the truth is that it is no longer needed. With modern technology such as scanning, emailing and even Skype or Facetime video calls there is no need to use your local solicitor. Your conveyancer can be based anywhere and still provide a great service - even if he or she is in an office many miles away from Bassetlaw or perhaps not even in Nottinghamshire .

It is not unknown for us to talk to clients outside the UK using Skype, and once we had clients in Thailand talking to us through an interpreter in New Zealand!

There will be no need for you to visit our offices or hand deliver documents. You need never leave Bassetlaw - our conveyancers will talk you through the process via phone and email, and everything works just as smoothly as it would if we were just down the road.

Fees for conveyancing in Bassetlaw

Our fees are transparent and, so long as the situation does not change (for example so long as your property doesn't turn out to be leasehold when we thought it was freehold) the fee we quote is the fee you will be charged.

We don't add extras on for things like photocopying, postage, or the like. Those are our overheads and we don't pass them on to you.

All our conveyancing fees are dependent on the nature and value of the transaction, so we naturally charge a bit more for more complicated and high value work. However, the fee charged will be the same for a customer in Newcastle as it would be for someone in London, or indeed in Bassetlaw .

There are some aspects of our conveyancing fees which we can't change. Fees charged by other bodies such as HM Land Registry, or by HMRC for Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) are out of our control.

Introduction to Bassetlaw

Bassetlaw is the northernmost district of Nottinghamshire, with a population of 114,143 as of mid-2014. The district is mainly rural, however it does consist of the large towns of Worksop and Retford, which have populations of 44,790 and 21,314 respectively.

Like many British districts, Bassetlaw was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a collaboration of the boroughs of Worksop and East Retford, as well as most of the the Worksop and East Retford Rural Districts.

The name 'Bassetlaw' is derived from the historic Bassetlaw Wapentake of Nottinghamshire.

Worksop acts as the administrative HQ for the district, and as Bassetlaw's largest town, it is subsequently the commercial hub of the area. Notable employers in the area include Premier Foods UK, which manufactures products for firms such as Batchelor's Soups, Super Noodles and Oxo. The Wilkinson UK headquarters are located just south of the town at Manton Wood, and there is also a large B&Q distribution centre.

Retford also acts as a commercial strong point of the area, but also accommodates strong transport links. It is served by two railway lines- the Sheffield to Lincoln Line, which provides services to areas such as Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Sheffield and Lincoln, but more importantly the East Coast Main Line, which runs between London and Scotland, and trains to London Kings Cross take just 1hr 20 minutes.
