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

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

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 Oakham - 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 Oakham

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 Oakham.

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 Oakham

Oakham is a traditional English market town. Situated in the picturesque Vale of Catmose, Oakham is the County Town of Rutland, England's smallest mainland County.

Oakham Castle, one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in Oakham, by the Market Place, provides the hints to why there is a collection of over 200 horseshoes hanging on the walls.

The architecture of Oakham School is stunning and is a well known landmark in the town. Founded in 1584 it is a successful public school with some very successful former pupils and excellent facilities. The original Old School stands in All Saints Churchyard. The school has seen a series of new buildings, improvements and conversions that include a day house on Ashwell Road on the site of the former Oakham Workhouse.

On the 3rd Saturday every month a Farmers' Market comes to Gaol Street, Oakham. A host of quality produce direct from the farmer where discerning purchasers can choose from fresh ingredients direct from the local farms.

Oakham is a thriving town that has undergone considerable expansion. It currently has a population of approx. 13,000.

Model rail enthusiasts can admire Oakham Signal Box! It was formerly used by Airfix as the template for all of their models.

There is a wide and interesting choice of dining establishments in the Town, with cafes and tea bars to restaurants and great bistro style pub grub. There is plenty to choose from.

Oakham is to the west of Rutland Water, one of the biggest man-made lakes in Europe which is great for walking and has a cycle path all the way round - some 20 mile or so. There are pubs and cycle shops on the route.

Birmingham to Stansted Airport railway goes through Oakham, linking to Birmingham, Leicester, Peterborough, Cambridge and also to Stansted Airport.

Oakham railway station is about halfway between Peterborough and Leicester with both offering onward journeys to London - either Leicester to St Pancras or from Peterborough to King's Cross. There are also two direct services to London St Pancras (one early morning and one evening), and one evening return service from London St Pancras, each weekday.
