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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Erewash, 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 Erewash or perhaps not even in Derbyshire.

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 Erewash - 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 Erewash

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 Erewash.

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 Erewash

Erewash is local government district with borough status in Derbyshire, in the East Midlands. As of mid-2014 the area has a population of 114,048. It is situated to the east of Derby and to the West of Nottingham, and consists of the large towns of Long Eaton and Ilkeston, the latter of which houses the district's Admin HQ.
Like many British government districts, Erewash was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the Borough of Ilkeston, the Long Eaton urban district and part of the South East Derbyshire Rural District. 

Being the largest towns in the area with populations of 37,550 and 45,000 respectively, Ilkeston and Long Eaton acts as the economic hubs of the area. Whilst many of the borough's population commute to nearby Nottingham and Derby, it was due to Ilkeston and Long Eaton that the town was originally able to develop.

The Stanton Ironworks was originally one of the most significant local employers in the area, and evidence of quarrying in the area has been traced back to Roman Times. It particularly flourished in the mid-19th century, and at its peak around 7,000 were employed at the Stanton works. Pig iron and tunnel castings produced at the works have been used in projects such as the London Underground.

The industry has declined since then, and in more recent years light manufacturing and the service sector have become more apparent employers.

The two main towns are also home to the main cultural, sporting and transport services in the area.

Prominent sports clubs/teams in the area include Long Eaton United F.C and Ilkeston F.C, however there are also many other sporting clubs, such as cricket clubs, rugby clubs, basketball teams, and even a speedway team in Long Eaton. 

Ilkeston in itself has not had a railway since 1967, however it is close to both Derby and Nottingham, and has formidable access to the M1 motorway. Long Eaton also has good access to junction 25 of the M1 motorway, and also has a railway station- Long Eaton railway station, which is situated on the Midland Mainline, consequently providing frequent services to areas such as Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham New Street, Derby, Sheffield and London St Pancras.
