Fees for conveyancing in Scarborough
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 Scarborough .
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 Scarborough
Scarborough is a town on the North Sea coast in North Yorkshire. The population of the town is around 61,700, making it the largest seaside resort on the entirety of the Yorkshire Coast.

The 'old' town is the focal point for tourists, complete with an attractive sandy beach, cafes, amusements, arcades, theatres and entertainment facilities.
There are also a variety of annual attractions, including festivals such as Seafest, which celebrates the region's fishing industry, and hosts a large gathering of folk singers, shantymen and other musicians.

The town has also invested massively in digital connectivity, and the Scarborough Seafront now has the UK's first free seafront Wi-Fi, and it is also one of the fastest connections in Europe, at 100MB. This also acts as a pulling factor for tourists.
Furthermore, retail in the area is also exceptionally well suited for tourists. There are a wide range of major shopping chains in the town centre, as well as various independent boutique shops. The Brunswick Shopping Centre is also present in the town, and is home to over 30 stores, and has an annual footfall of around 7 million people.
The town's resident population also has maintains a strong sports scene. The Scarborough Amateur Rowing Club is the oldest surviving rowing club on the north east coast, being founded in 1869. There is also a yacht club, various football clubs, rugby union and league teams, golf clubs as well as Scarborough Cricket Club, who play in the Yorkshire ECB County Premier League. Their ground, North Marine Road is frequently used by Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

There are a number of A Roads which link the town with other areas, such as the A64, which links the town with Malton, York and Leeds, the A165, which provides a link with Filey, Bridlington and Hull and the A171, a coastal route providing a connection to Whitby and Middlesborough.
