Why don't you need a conveyancer based in East Northamptonshire?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of East Northamptonshire, 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 East Northamptonshire 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 East Northamptonshire - 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 East Northamptonshire

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 East Northamptonshire.

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 East Northamptonshire

East Northamptonshire is a local government district in the East Midlands. As of mid-2014, the area has a population of 88,872, and the majority of this is spread over the large towns of Rushden, Irthlingborough and Thrapston, the latter of which houses the district's admin HQ.

The district was formed on the 1st April 1974, through a merger of the municipal borough of Higham Ferrers, with the urban districts of Irthlingborough, Oundle, Raunds and Rushden, as well as the Oundle and Thrapston Rural District and Newton Bromswold from the Wellinborough Rural District.

Being the largest town in the district, Rushden also provides the majority of the district's public facilities, including economic, transport and leisure. Rushden holds the majority of retail services, including a number of supermarkets such as a Waitrose and a relatively new £40m ASDA superstore. Plans are also underway for a new £50m out of town leisure and shopping centre which is to be known as the Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre, which will include an array of shops, hotels, restaurants, a leisure centre and even a marina.

There are two further existing leisure centres, with facilities such as swimming pools and sport halls, as well as a number of sports teams, such as AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Rushden & Higham RUFC.

East Northamptonshire contains no railway stations, and Rushden is one of the largest towns in the country not to have a station, however Wellingborough station is the nearest, being just 5 miles away. Despite this, plans for a new station, to be known as Rushden Parkway are currently underway.

There are, however, reliable bus and road services, and the town of Rushden is bypassed by the A6 which connects it with Kettering, Bedford and Luton, and the A45 also connects the town to the East Coast as well as Northampton and the M1 motorway.
