Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Corby?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Corby, 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 Corby or perhaps not even in Northamptonshire.
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 Corby - 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 Corby
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 Corby.
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 Corby
Corby is a large town and borough in the county of Northamptonshire. As of mid-2014, the population of the town is 65,434, and it is located just 23 miles from the county town of Northampton. In 2010, a figure was released stating that Corby had the fastest growing population in both Northamptonshire and also England.
Alot of this growth is due to the town's economy. In the early 20th century the town developed through the introduction of steelworks, which became some of the most prominent in the country, however in the latter half of the 20th century the works declined, and nowadays the economy is centered elsewhere. There is a large service sector as well as retail, and the town centre has undergone a large amount of regeneration schemes. One of the most major developments is the Corby Cube, which was opened in 2010 and cost £47.5m. It contains a council chamber for the Corby Borough Council, a Registry Office, a public library, a 450 seat theatre and a 100 seat studio theatre.
Other notable employers in the area include Weetabix Ltd, Fairline Boats and RS Components.
Retail is also strong, and the new Willow Precinct opened in 2007. Another £50m development opened in 2010, known as Parkland Gateway, which includes a new Olympic sized swimming pool.
The town is also home to a number of cultural attractions, which include Rockingham Speedway, and also Steel Park, which is home to Corby Town F.C and has a capacity of just under 4,000. The team currently play in the National League North. There are also rugby clubs and cricket clubs, and the town is also home to the Corby East Midlands International Swimming Pool.
In terms of transport, Corby is home to a number of major roads such as the A43, the A427 and the A6003, and the A14 is just six miles away in Kettering. There are also a number of reliable bus services which connects the town to the likes of Peterborough, Oundle, Kettering and Northampton.
There is also a railway station, which runs services to the likes of Kettering, Derby, Melton Mowbray and Oakham.
