Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Bourne?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Bourne, 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 Bourne 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 Bourne - 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 Bourne
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 Bourne.
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 Bourne
Bourne is a market town in the south of Lincolnshire. Bourne is on the western edge of the Lincolnshire Fens and is within easy reach of Grantham, Lincoln and Newark where 3 of the offices of Bourne Conveyancing Solicitors Bird & Co Solicitors LLP, Conveyancing Solicitors, are situated.
The town is located on a Roman road now known as King Street and was built around natural springs. The name 'Bourne' - or 'Bourn', as the town was originally known - which comes from the Anglo-Saxon meaning “water”. It lies on the intersection of the A15 and the A151 roads. The parish includes the main town plus the hamlets of Dyke, Cawthorpe and Twenty. Some years ago Austerby was regarded as a separate settlement, with its own shops and street plan, but is now an area of Bourne itself and is known as “The Austerby”.
The town's economy was based on rural industries until the railway opened up a market for bottled mineral water. Although it is still focused on farming and food packaging and preparation for supermarkets and retailers, tourism and light engineering are also key components to the local economy. The district has a fast-growing housing market with considerable new building taking place in Bourne since 2000.
There are a number of small machine shops and fabricators in the south and east of the town. These include Pilbeam Racing in Graham Hill Way and Trackline International.
There are garden centres in Cherry Holt Road, furniture and decorating shopping in Manning Road, and specialist suppliers of kitchen, decorative, catering and light engineering supplies. In addition there is a selection of local shops, retailers, pubs and restaurants in the town centre.
A large volume of traffic is generated within the town, with the result that the A15 between Bourne and Peterborough is one of the busiest roads in the county. To the west of the town, the A6121 branches from the A151 and takes traffic towards Stamford.
There are excellent road links to Peterborough where London Kings Cross can be reached on the east Coast mainline in about 50 minutes.
Newark is only 36 miles away via the A151 and the A1 where the Conveyancing Solicitors Bird & Co Solicitors Property and Conveyancing headquarters is based. There are several teams of property and conveyancing solicitors and lawyers based at Newark and also a dedicated support team to help you through your conveyancing transaction, from conveyancing quote to completion and registration.
There are several conveyancing solicitors based at Grantham who can see clients from Bourne either if they wish to drop in to the office or make an appointment at a time convenient to the client.
