Why don't you need a conveyancer based in South Northamptonshire?

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

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 South Northamptonshire - 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 South Northamptonshire

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 South Northamptonshire.

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 South Northamptonshire

South Northamptonshire is a district in Northamptonshire, with a population of 88,164 as of mid-2014. A significant amount of this population is found in the main towns of Brackley and Towcester, which have populations of 13,018 and 9,252 respectively. The latter is also home to the district's administrative HQ. Many of the district's villages also have populations in excess of 1,000. 

Like many British government districts, South Northamptonshire was formed on the 1st April 1974, through a merger of the municipal borough of Brackley, along with the Brackley Rural District, the Towcester Rural District and part of the Northampton Rural District. 

The districts economy revolves mainly around the service sector. Many of the towns in the area are strongly linked with Formula 1- The Silverstone Grand Prix track is just 0.5 miles away from the village of Silverstone, and the annual Grand Prix attracts around 300,000 visitors. For instance, the town of Brackley is home to the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.

Aside from this, other industry in the area includes iron oxide manufacture, soap manufacturing and much more. Towcester also has a strong retail base. 

Brackley is also home to one of the districts main sports clubs- Brackley Town Football Club. They are known as the Saints, and currently play in the Conference North League. Their home ground is St James Park, which has a capacity of 3,500. There are also rugby clubs, other football clubs, tennis clubs, a leisure centre and even a martial arts academy. 

In terms of transport, places such as Brackley and Towcester also accommodate the majority of the area's good transport links. For instance, Brackley is close to the A43 road, which links the town with Towcester and Northampton, and the A422 also links the town with Banbury and Buckingham. Towcester also has strong access to the A43, the M40 and the A34.

The district has few railway stations- one of the few is King's Sutton station, in the village of the same name. The station is served by Chiltern Railways and First Great Western, who provide serves to the likes of Banbury, Heyford and Bicester North.
