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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Southwell , and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

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 Southwell or perhaps not even in Nottinghamshire.

Fees for conveyancing in Southwell 

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 Southwell .

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 Southwell 

Southwell is a town in Nottinghamshire, with a population of around 6,900.

It is renown for it being the site of the Southwell Minster. The Minster is said to have been built in between the years of c.1108 and c.1300. Its predominant Romanesque and Gothic architecture should also be noted. It is also Grade I listed and acts as a notable attraction for tourists and the Minster draws its choir from the nearby Southwell Minster school, of whom the school is closely associated. 

There are two infant schools; Lowes Wong and Southwell Holy Trinity C of E. From ages 7-11 children may attend Lowes Wong Junior School. From then on, many attend the Southwell Minster School. The minster get some of the best GCSE, AS and A level results in the county. 

Southwell is also well known as the first place the renown Bramley Apple was seeded. Mary Ann Brailsford is said to have seeded it in 1809, and the apple is now used throughout the culinary world due to its unique acidic taste and the fact that it cooks to a smooth puree. Due to the Bramley fame, much of Southwell has identified the apple. The local newspaper, which delivers 11,200 copies a month, is named the Bramley, and the local library was also named The Bramley. 

The town is accessed from Newark and Nottingham due to the A612 road, and the A617 passes just 2 miles north of the town through Hockerton. The local village of Fiskerton is home to the most local train station. It has recently had a car park installed which enables Southwell residents to commute. It is served by East Midlands Trains.
