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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Market Harborough, and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

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 Market Harborough or perhaps not even in Leicestershire .

Fees for conveyancing in Market 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 Market 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.

Introduction to Market Harborough

Market Harborough is a market town in Leicestershire, with a population of 22,911. It is the administrative hub of Harborough District Council, and sits on the Northamptonshire and Leicestershire border.

The area was originally part of Rockingham Forest, a renown medieval hunting ground.

The towns more historic parts, such as the centre, consist of grey stone architecture, and the predominant building in the area is the St. Dionysius Parish Church and its steeple. Parallel to the church is the Old Grammar School, which isn't made of grey stone, but timber (c.1614).

The town is also comprised of two villages; Great Bowden and Little Bowden. Little Bowden is situated less than half a mile away from the centre, and because of this it has more or less merged into the town. Great Bowden maintains its own large village identity.

Market Harborough also played importance in the English Civil War when the town became the headquarters of the King's Army, and Harborough Chapel became a temporary prison for the captured forces.

In terms of economy, there are a number of notable firms located in the town; Travelodge, NFU, CDS Global (UK office). Golden Wonder also used to be based in the town until they went into administration in 2006.

Market Harborough station is on the Midland Main Line and operated by East Midlands Trains. There are frequent trains to areas such as Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester, Leeds and York, and St Pancras International is just 70 minutes.
