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

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

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 Kettering .

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 Kettering 

Kettering is a town in Northamptonshire, about 81 miles from London. According to the 2011 census, the town has a population of 67,635. The town is mainly situated on the west side of the River Ise, a tributary of the River Nene, which meets at Wellingborough.

The name 'Kettering' originally derives from the name Cytringan, Kyteringas and Keteiringan in the 10th century. 

Whilst it is not particularly close to London, there are fast InterCity trains directly to London St Pancras, which take approximately 1 hour. Consequently, Kettering has a surprisingly large London commuting population.

In terms of the local population, Kettering has a history of boot and shoe manufacturing, which allowed the town to develop significantly.

Nowadays, like many large British towns, the service and distribution industries have become much more prominent. Notable employers include Weetabix, Pegasus Software, RCI Europe and Timpsons Ltd.

Furthermore, thanks to the town's prominent economy, it has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, with over 80% of adults in full time employment. 

Kettering also has a relatively large sporting presence in the town. Kettering Town Football Club are one of the principal sports clubs in the town. They currently play at Latimer Park, which has a capacity of 2,300.

There are a few interesting facts about the club; it was the first British team to wear sponsorship upon their shirts in 1976, the first club to have their initials in their floodlights, and the club are also the leading FA Cup goalscorers of all time.

There is also a rugby club, Kettering RFC, who are located in Waverley Road on the eastern side of the town. 

In terms of transport, the A14 road skirts the west and south of the town, and links the town with the A45 dual carriageway, as well as the M1 and M6 motorways. The A6003 links the town with Corby as well as the county town of Northampton and the A509 links Kettering with Wellingborough.

Kettering railway station is the main station in the town, and provides a half-hourly service to London St.Pancras, an hourly service to either Leicester or Nottingham, and there are also one train per day to York at the Weekends.
