Fees for conveyancing in Nottinghamshire
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 Nottinghamshire .
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 Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire is a county in the East Midlands of England, bordering South Yorkshire to the north west, Lincolnshire to the east, Leicestershire to the south and Derbyshire to the west. As of mid-2014, the population of the county is 1,090,600, and much of this population can be found in the larger towns of Nottingham, Mansfield and Worksop. That said, there are also a number of other notable settlements which are significant in their own right.
Nottingham is a relatively large city in the East Midlands, with a population of 314,268. It is located just 30 miles south of Sheffield and 30 miles north of Leicester. The city is renowned for its industries such as tobacco, lace making and bicycles, however, above all, Nottingham is globally known as the origin of the legend of Robin Hood. Robin Hood is said to have lived in the major oak (an oversized oak tree which still exists today) in the nearby Sherwood Forest, and with his archery skills would steal from the rich to give to the poor. The Robin Hood legend has been a huge driver for tourism in the city. For instance, in 2011, Nottingham visitors spent over £1.5bn- ranking the sixth highest in England.
Another noteworthy visitor attraction is Nottingham Castle which is perched high on a rocky clifftop, known as Castle Rock, reaching 130 feet high. It dates back to the Middle Ages but after falling into ruin, it was later rebuilt to house a museum and what was Britain’s first municipal art gallery. There are displays on the city’s history and works by Dante Gabriel Rosetti (1828-82) and Sir Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) can be viewed here. Below the castle is, as some claim, Britain’s oldest pub Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem dating from as far back as 1189 and said to be referencing the crusades of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Other museums near to the castle include the Tales of Robin Hood and the Museum of Costumes and Textiles which explores Nottingham as a centre for embroider, lacemaking, tapestries and knitted textiles. Stately homes within a short radius of Nottingham include the wonderful neo-classical Kedleston Hall and the spectacular Hardwick Hall.
The city's economy developed due to industries such as bicycle manufacture. One of the leading bike brands, Raleigh, was born in Nottingham, and nowadays the economy revolves around companies such as Imperial Tobacco, Boots, Pedigree Pet Foods, as well as many others.
The economy also benefits greatly from retail. There are two large shopping centres; the Victoria Centre, as well as the Broadmarsh Centre which is currently undergoing a £400m regeneration scheme. There are also a number of department stores including House of Fraser, John Lewis and Debenhams.
Visitors may also attend the city to witness a number of landmarks or events. There are many music venues; The O2 arena and Rock City both host a wide range of both national and international acts, as do venues such as the Rescue Rooms but just to a lesser extent. The city also hosts two music festivals every year; Splendour, in Wollaton Park has hosted artists such as Razorlight and happens annually, as does the Dot to Dot festival, however that only happens for one day.
Clumber park, Rufford County Park and Sherwood Park are all popular amongst visitors as well.
In terms of sport, the city is also home to City Ground, which is where Championship side Nottingham Forest play, but there is also Meadow Lane, which is home to another professional football club, Notts County. Trent Bridge cricket stadium is not only home to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club but also hosts many international games, including Test Matches.
Nottingham railway station is also a significant hub for East Midlands trains, which provides services to nearby areas such as Lincoln and Leicester, however there are also less frequent services from Nottingham down to London St Pancras, also via East Midlands Trains.
Nottingham has two universities the University of Nottingham, which is part of the Russell Group and Nottingham Trent University. Together they have a combined student population of 61,000 students. The University of Nottingham Medical School is part of The Queen’s Medical Centre.
The city’s main news publication is the Nottingham Post, owned by Northcliffe Media. Other local publications include; the free LeftLion Magazine which covers local culture, arts and entertainment and food and drink and is distributed across the city; and The Tab which is run by students from both of the city’s universities. Nottingham is home to the BBC’s East Midland’s headquarters and each weeknight BBC East Midlands Today is broadcast across the region. There are also several radio stations broadcasting across the area including BBC Radio Nottingham and Capital East Midlands.
Worksop is the largest town in the Bassetlaw District, Nottinghamshire and sits on the River Ryton to the north of Sherwood Forest. The town is about 19 miles south-east of the centre of Sheffield and its population is around 45,000. Worksop attracts an increasing number of commuters to the area because of its close proximity to Nottingham, Lincoln, Leicester, Derby and Sheffield.
Worksop is known as the "Gateway to the Dukeries", because of the four principle sites next to each other, south of the town. These four ducal locations are; Thoresby Hall, Welbeck Abbey and Worksop Manor and Clumber. It lies on the A57 with links to the A1, M1 and A60, allowing goods to be easily transported into and out of the area. Wilkinson and B&Q both have large distribution centres in the area.
An important manufacturer in Worksop is Premier Foods UK, which produces products such as Batchelor's Soups and Super Noodles and Oxo. Oxo is solely produced in Worksop. Greencore Sandwiches also have a production facility in the Town. Wilkinson UK headquarters is at JK House, south of the town centre on the A57, and is a familiar focal point for passing motorists. The distribution centre is an important local employer in the local economy. There is also a B&Q distribution centre, a plastics recycling plant, a liquid chocolate manufacturing plant owned by OCG Cacao, part of Cargill, and Pandrol who are a world class manufacturer of railway fastenings.
Worksop is on the Sheffield-Lincoln line, with trains to Sheffield, Doncaster, Meadowhall Interchange, Lincoln, Retford, Gainsborough and Shireoaks. The service is run by Northern Rail. Worksop is also the terminus of the Robin Hood line to Nottingham and Mansfield, a service run by East Midlands trains. The town is close to Sheffield Airport, Robin Hood Airport, East Midlands Airport and Birmingham Airport.
For nearby countryside attractions, the National Trust's Clumber Park is a local place of beauty and recreation.
There is a long list of notable people from the region including famous writers Lord Byron and DH Lawrence, artist and writer Christina Rossetti, William Gladstone who was Prime Minister of Britain between 1868 and 1894, Ken Clarke who was former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Adlington.
