Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Boston?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Boston, 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 Boston or perhaps not even in Lincolnshire.
We have successfully dealt with thousands of conveyancing transactions all over the country, even with clients from the other side of the world. 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 Boston - 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 Boston
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 Boston.
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 Boston
Boston is a thriving market Town in the east of England in the County of Lincolnshire.
It is the town centre of the local Borough of Boston with a population of about 70,000. Much of the local population are employed in agriculture, farming and related industries. The town is situated on the east coast of England about 35 miles from Lincoln City Centre, where the offices of Boston Conveyancing Solicitors and Lincoln Conveyancing Solicitor Bird & Co Solicitors LLP can be found at 352 High Street, Lincoln. There are two specialist property lawyer teams based at the Lincoln Office. Boston is also in easy reach of Grantham, another thriving market town in Lincolnshire, where Boston Conveyancing Solicitors Bird & Co Solicitors LLP have a busy office with two dedicated property teams.
Not too far away from Boston, about 36 miles to the west on the A17, is Newark on Trent where Boston Conveyancing Solicitors Bird & Co Solicitors LLP have a large office and where their Conveyancing and Property Teams have their head office.
Boston's most notable landmark is St Botolph's Church ("The Stump"), said to be the largest parish church in England, with one of the taller towers in England visible for miles from the flats of Lincolnshire. Residents of Boston are known still known as Bostonians. Emigrants from Boston named several other settlements after the town, the most well known being Boston, Massachusetts, in the USA.
During WW1 lots of the Boston's trawlermen, along with some of those from Grimsby, were taken prisoner after their ships were sunk by German U-Boats in the North Sea. Their families did not know what had happened to them until late September 1914. Also at that time the Port of Boston was used by hospital ships and some four thousand injured troops passed through Boston.
The first cinema opened in 1910. Boston was used to represent the Netherlands when the real thing was not available for filming during WW2. Central Park was developed in 1919 and is now one of the landmarks in the town. Electricity came to Boston during the early 1900s and electrical street lighting was provided from 1924.
The town largely avoided the development boom of the 1960s. A new shopping centre, named the Pescod Centre, opened in Boston in 2004 bringing many new retail businesses into the town.
Boston railway station is served by East Midland Trains on the Poacher Line from Grantham to Skegness. There are rail links to Lincoln and fast trains from Grantham and Newark to London. Both Grantham and Newark have excellent commuter links to the City of London and beyond due to their short journey time to London and both towns are served by the offices of Conveyancing Solicitors Bird & Co Solicitors LLP.
