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

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

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 Harborough - 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.

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Harborough , Market Harborough, Broughton Astley and all sorts of other places, having first found us via our website.

After that, the relationship between you and your conveyancer is the same as any other. We have the same professional obligations towards you, and deal with your conveyancing file in the same way.

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 Harborough 

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 Harborough .

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.

The district was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of of the Market Harborough urban district, the Market Harborough Rural District, the Billesdon Rural District and the Lutterworth Rural District.

There are a total of 4,750 registered businesses in the district, and notable employers in the town include CDS, who have their UK office in Sovereign Park, Abtec Network Systems Ltd, who have their head office in the Compass Point Business Park, and NFU, whose Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland branch has been based in the town since 1975. Golden Wonder was also based in the town until 2006 when it went into administration under Kroll.
