Fees for conveyancing in North East Derbyshire

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 North East Derbyshire.

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 North East Derbyshire

However, like the majority of the country, the coal industry declined in the area, and in more recent years, other economic sectors have developed.

The town is also home to the oldest football club in the world- Sheffield F.C. The town of of Eckington also has a number of public facilities. such as a swimming pool and a library.
