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

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

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 Fenland - 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.

It might feel like online conveyancing because you can talk to us through email on your computer, but really it is proper conveyancing.

Fees for conveyancing in Fenland

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 Fenland.

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 Fenland

Fenland is a local government district in Cambridgeshire. As of mid-2014, the area has a population of 97,732, and most of this population is spread over the main towns of March, Whittlesey and Wisbech, which have populations of 19,042, 15,581 and 31,573 respectively. March also houses the district's admin HQ.

The district was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the borough of Wisbech, the Chatteris Urban District, the March Urban District, the Whittlesey Urban District, the North Witchford Rural District and the Wisbech Rural District.

The name is derived from the area's landscape, which consists of over 500 square kilometres of flat fens. 

The Fenland economy is renown for having a strong base in farming and the food industry, both of which are now very well established, and have subsequently diversified into related sectors such as storage, packaging, and distribution.

The centres for retail in the area are found in the large towns of Wisbech, Whittlesey and March, and March in particular accommodates an array of independent shops and retailers, and famous retailers include the likes of W.H.Smith, Boyes, Boots and M&Co. Furthermore, in 2008, the Meadowland retail park opened with Argos Superstore and Carpetright amongst the large scale tenants. 

March is also home to many of Fenland's important transport facilities, including an important railway station. March railway station provides frequent services to stations such as Peterborough, Leicester, Birmingham New Street, Norwich, Liverpool Lime Street, Nottingham and Manchester Piccadilly.
