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

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

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!

Fees for conveyancing in Sleaford

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 Sleaford.

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 Sleaford

A market town in North Kesteven, Lincolnshire, a beautiful and predominantly agricultural county in the East Midlands. Seaford is situated on the edge of the Fens, about 12 miles NE of Grantham, 17 miles west of Boston & 18 miles south of Lincoln. 

The population of 19,000 and the town is the largest settlement in North Kesteven making up approx. 16 per cent of its total population. The town benefits from the A17 and A15 trunk roads and it is connected to Lincoln, Newark, Peterborough and King's Lynn. In addition, Sleaford is also on the Peterborough to Lincoln and the Nottingham to Grantham.

In the medieval period records remain of settlements in Old and New Sleaford, with New Sleaford emerging in the areas around the current market place and St Denys' Church. Sleaford Castle was formed in the 1100's for the Bishops of Lincoln. Seaford was granted the right to hold a market in the mid-12th century, and New Sleaford became a market town and emerged as a force in the wool trade, while Old Sleaford started to decline.

From the 1500's century, the landowners were the Carre family controlled the Town. The enclosure of the town's fields in 1794 coincided with the canalisation of the Slea and heralded the first steps towards modern ways of working. 

In the 20th century the sale of agricultural land around Sleaford by Bristol Estates led to a large amount of house building. The subsequent availability of affordable housing together with the excellent facilities and easy to access healthcare made Seaford an attractive for those wishing to re-locate or retire. As a result, the Town's populus underwent as rapid a growth as any town in the Lincolnshire during the 1990/2000.
